Campers flee from Southern California wildfire

By From page A4 | August 18, 2014

AZUSA — A wildfire in the Angeles National Forest in Southern California is forcing people to evacuate from a campground and recreational areas.

U.S. Forest Service spokesman Nathan Judy says the fire above the foothill community of Azusa was reported about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. It spread to about 200 acres in an hour and sent a plume of smoke visible across the Los Angeles Basin.

Judy said State Route 39 has been closed to traffic.
