A new brush fire is ignited in Southern California, consumes vegetation and threatening homes in the suburbs east of Los Angeles, officials said Wednesday.
Sierra Fire in Fontana, about 50 miles east of LA city center, broke out as state mortality in fires ignited last week to 51, officials said.  T His last flame has consumed at least  147 hectares, San Bernardino County authorities said.
At 8:01 am PT (11:01 ET) on Wednesday, the fan had been 75 percent and the “structural threat was alleviated”, says firefighters.
The River San Bernardino County is located approximately 90 miles east of Woolsey Fire, which has killed at least three, and Hill Fire. The two major fires have both drained first responder resources in L.A. and Ventura Counties.
Woolsey Fire’s third victim was found in the 32000 block of Lobo Canyon Road in Agoura Hills, the authorities said on Wednesday. The latest discovery gives the state a total of 51, largely attributable to the 48 confirmed to be killed in Camp Fire 500 miles north of Butte County.
