A fire that broke out in the mountainous area of northern Los Angeles Aug. 26 is spiraling out of control. A total of 105,000 acres or 425 million square meters of land have been burned and 6,600 households have been evacuated. The blaze is moving to Glendale and La Crescenta, the San Fernando Valley and Santa Clara, where many Koreans live. White fumes hang over high-rise buildings in downtown Los Angeles.
