SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A wildfire burning out of control outside of Bakersfield has destroyed a dozen homes.

It's dubbed the "Canyon Fire" and it's only 10 percent contained. Flames are hard to reach on steep terrain so helicopters are being used to fight the blaze.

Cal Fire says over 8,600 acres have burned so far. Fifteen outbuildings have also been destroyed

The fire was reportedly started by a small plane crash.
