An upscale coastal neighborhood in Southern California was evacuated Wednesday after a wildfire fanned by ocean winds spread to as many as eight homes.
The Laguna Niguel fire was first reported around 2:45 p.m. and had engulfed about 30 acres by 5 p.m., according to KNBC-TV.
Dramatic helicopter video broadcast by KABC-TV showed the fire climbing a bush-covered hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean and spreading via Ocean County’s Aliso Summit hiking trail to palatial homes atop the hill.
Crews fought the fire from above with planes and threw fire retardants and water at the smoke-polluted area, video showed.
