Authorities with the Angeles National Forest were already dealing with a small and controllable fire this afternoon when a worse one broke out in San Gabriel Canyon north of Azusa shortly before 4:30 p.m. It has burned at least 50 acres, according to a 5:05 p.m. Twitter update from officials. Fueled by winds and hot temperatures, the fire is moving fast and has prompted campground evacuations, the LA Times alerted in a breaking news e-mail. A red flag warning was scheduled to go into effect tomorrow at 6 a.m.
