The fire in Rancho Palos Verdes has burned more than 75 acres and has prompted the evacuation of up to 3,000 people, said officials with the Los Angeles County Fire Department. A fire has not burned in the area since the 1950s. The blaze began around 8 p.m. and within an hour, had already consumed a couple homes. Officials do not know how much of the fire is contained, if any.

The evacuation center is located at Palos Verdes Peninsula High School at 21178 Silver Spur Road in Rolling Hills Estates.
