The fire that tore through the Oakridge Mobile Home Park in Sylmar left total devastation in its wake. According to LAFD Captain Steve Ruda, who spoke to evacuees gathered at Sylmar High School this morning, almost all of the approximately 600 homes in the community were burned to the ground. The Sayre Fire began at 10:30 Friday night and has burned at least 6500 acres and remains far from being contained. The LAPD now considers the Oakridge Mobile Home Park a "crime scene."
