A firefighter gestures during the so-called Sand Fire in the Angeles National Forest near Los Angeles, CaliforniaBy Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A fierce California wildfire drove thousands more residents from their homes on Monday as flames raged for a fourth day through drought-parched canyons and foothills north of Los Angeles. Nearly 3,000 firefighters were battling the so-called Sand Fire, which has charred at least 50 square miles (130 square km) around the rugged northwestern fringes of the Angeles National Forest since it broke out on Friday, authorities said. By Monday morning evacuation orders had been expanded to about 10,000 homes, encompassing an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 people, fire officials said.
