Fueled by hot conditions and shifting winds, a brush fire exploded across the eastern San Fernando Valley on Saturday, consuming thousands of acres while prompting hundreds of mandatory evacuations.

Parts of Burbank, Glendale and Sunland-Tujunga were under evacuation orders for the La Tuna Fire. The Burbank evacuations were lifted by 10 p.m. Saturday, but the others remained in place.

Officials believe the La Tuna Fire is the largest blaze by acreage in Los Angeles city history.

About 730 homes were evacuated: 300 in Burbank, 250 in Glendale and 180 in Los Angeles. (Click to Site)
