Brush fire destroys 9,300 acres near L.A.

The fire is spreading extremely rapidly, blown by wind across thousands of acres of dry brush. The Associated Press is updating its story hourly as the swath of devastation expands. Seven hundred firefighters are now fighting the blaze, but it is only 5% contained. (Associated Press, in the Washington Post.)
