According to the DOF, the call of the wild fire named for a nearby road to where it was burning was reported around 7:30 p.m.

The crew was preparing for the triple-digit heat expected in the area on Sunday, Judy said.

Meanwhile in Northern California, authorities shut down northbound lanes of State Route 13 in Oakland as firefighters try to put out a grass fire.

There are now 380 firefighting personnel and five aircraft dedicated to battling the blaze, which has an estimated containment date of Friday, Judy said. Los Angeles County is experiencing its first major heat wave of the year.

Perhaps most importantly, no injuries were reported to any residents of the area or firefighters, despite an all-day effort in temperatures reached into the high-90s throughout the area.

"Things are looking good", said Nathan Judy, spokesman for the Angeles National Forest.

Two outhouses were claimed in the blaze, but no homes were lost.

After three days of battling a brush fire near Castaic Lake in triple digit temperatures, firefighters managed to contain the Lake Fire to 78 percent, halting its advance and holding it to about 800 burned acres.

By mid-Sunday morning, firefighters were working to tackle the east side of the fire as winds remained calm at four to eight miles per hour.

Access to the fire early on was hard, he said, due to the fact that there was little in the way of access to where the fire was burning.

Airplanes and helicopters will continue dropping fire retardant on the flames throughout the night.

"We have a (bull) dozer line to the north", Licon said.

There is no further information available at this time.
