The crews were assigned to structure protection for both residential and business structures and could be in Los Angeles County for up to 14-days before returning home.

The fire was reported at around 4:50 a.m. local time, according to CBS News. She and her family were given just enough time to gather some necessities but not their horses, Padilla said. In October, more than a dozen fires blazed through the northern part of the state, burning thousands of acres along the way.

One resident who was evacuated told KTLA he was surprised at how quickly the winds shifted.

"This fire is very risky and spreading rapidly, but we'll continue to attack it with all we've got", Brown said, according to the Los Angeles Times. Fire officials said a firefighter was injured when the bulldozer he was operating overturned in an attempt to try to cut fire lines on the steep hillsides.

More than 600 firefighters battled the blaze amid strong Santa Ana winds, some gusting at 70 miles per hour. The Los Angeles Police Department was on a citywide tactical alert, which allows commanders maximum flexibility in deploying resources. As the fire expanded and jumped south of the Foothill Freeway, so did the mandatory evacuation area.

The exception to the evacuation order was the Bel Air Crest housing development, which was not threatened, Garcetti said.
