The La Tuna Fire near Burbank, California, destroyed at least one home and continued to threaten others on Saturday, September 2, after it grew to more than 5,000 acres overnight. As of late Saturday morning, the fire was just 10 percent contained. The fire prompted the evacuation of more than 700 homes and the closure of a stretch of the 210 Freeway, the Los Angeles Fire Department said. Around 500 firefighters were battling the blaze. This footage was shot in Sunland, just west of La Tuna Canyon, and shows helicopters dropping water on the fire. Credit: Twitter/Saberfire via Storyful
