The wildfire has already blackened over 4 thousand acres and dry windy conditions are not helping.
People have been forced out of their homes, some freeways are shut down and this fire shows no signs of letting up.
It is all going on near the suburbs east of Los Angeles- we're told now four homes have been hit by fire.
Tonight fire officials say they think someone set this blaze.

[OUT Q=and then ceates a cavity]

One way to reduce your child risk of cavity is to first limit the amount of candy they eat at one time, consider sugar free treats, make sure they brush and floss right after eating the candy, or if a toothbrush is not available rinse with water.
Most kids keep their baby teeth from about five to 12 years old --and Dr. Levicki says it's important not to lose them.
