A light grass brush fire that broke out around noon today has burned approximately 30 acres and is threatening homes in an Agoura Hills subdivision, but as of 1:45 p.m., all evacuations were mandatory. 225 to 250 firefighters were on scene. The LA County Fire Department told LAist over the phone that it is burning south of the 101 Freeway where it began near Las Virgenes and Lost Hills roads.
