(Reuters) - A fast-growing wildfire in southern California has destroyed ten houses, mobile homes and other buildings in a wilderness southeast of Los Angeles, authorities said late on Tuesday.
No one has been reported injured in the blaze, which the San Bernardino National Forest service said has ripped through 9,000 acres (3,642 hectares) in the San Jacinto Mountains since it broke out Monday.
Authorities are still trying to find out what caused the fire, about 110 miles (176 km) from Los Angeles, and have ordered residents from several small communities to leave their homes.
