At least one cabin has burned. Two campgrounds containing at least 40 people have been evacuated.

About 130 firefighters are battling the flames in 100-degree heat.

Another fire erupted Friday afternoon in Simi Valley, just northwest of Los Angeles. It's destroyed 30 acres of land is plowing through hills next to subdivisions containing hundreds of homes.

No injuries are reported.

A smaller fire has burned several acres in Poway in San Diego County but no homes are threatened.
