Evacuations ordered in Southern California

Authorities in California have ordered mandatory evacuations after a wildfire broke out in San Bernardino County over the weekend.

The wildfire, dubbed Sheep Fire, was first reported as a quarter-acre fire near Wrightwood, Calif., on Saturday evening by San Bernardino County, but by Sunday night it had grown to 990 acres.

On Sunday, law enforcement went door-to-door in the area of Desert Front Road and Wild Horse Canyon, issuing evacuation orders.

In a statement, the Angeles National Forest said that Wrightwood was also under evacuation orders.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office issued an evacuation order from Highway 2 south to Lone Pine Canyon Road and from Wright Mountain Road to Sheep Creek Drive later Sunday.

Officials stated an evacuation center has been set up at Serrano High School, where the Red Cross is on the scene, and that small animals and livestock will be housed at the Devore Animal Shelter.
