Los Angeles hit by largest wildfire in its history, prompting hundreds of evacuationsA wildfire on the northern edge of Los Angeles rapidly grew on Saturday into what the mayor called the largest blaze in the city’s history, prompting the evacuation of hundreds of people and the closure of a major highway. The 5,000-acre (2,023-hectare) La Tuna Fire, named after the canyon area where it erupted on Friday, has led authorities to evacuate more than 700 homes in a north Los Angeles neighbourhood and in nearby Burbank and Glendale, officials said. “Other than that, no loss of any property,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said at a news conference.
