A firefighter gestures during the so-called Sand Fire in the Angeles National Forest near Los Angeles, CaliforniaA California wildfire that has destroyed more than a dozen homes and left one man dead is forcing thousands of residents to flee as flames raged for a fourth day through drought-parched canyons and foothills north of Los Angeles, officials said on Monday. The so-called Sand Fire 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, and remained just 10 percent contained on Monday, authorities said. By Monday morning evacuation orders had been expanded to 10,000 homes, or roughly 20,000 people, Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Joey Marron said, adding that about 200 commercial buildings were also in harm's way.
