Wildfire raging out of control in Big Sur, California

Hundreds of fire crews are trying to control a fast moving wildfire in Big Sur, California that had consumed more than 600 acres by late Monday, local time.

The raging blaze forced scores of other residents to flee the Los Padres National Forest near state Highway 1. One of the homes destroyed by the blaze belonged to Big Sur Fire Chief, reports said.

In 2008, the Basin Complex Fire forced an eight-day evacuation of Big Sur and closure of Highway 1. The fire consumed more than 130,000 acres (530 km²), destroying about 30 homes.
