Those Crazy Winds Caused 10 Brush Fires In The Past Day
Ten brush fires have broken out across Los Angeles County over the past day as strong, dry winds reaching up to 65 mph ripped through the region, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The fires were mostly contained to a few acres, popping up in Elysian Park, Eagle Rock, El Sereno, Lake View Terrace, and the Sepulveda Basin, among other spots. A fast-moving fire in Castaic was by far the largest, burning 86 acres.

"This is an unusual weather system."
