GORMAN, Calif. (AP) — A brush fire has broken out in the rural Gorman area of northern Los Angeles County.

The county Fire Department says the fire was reported about 1:20 p.m. Friday and quickly grew to 30 acres.

The fire broke out south of State Route 138, a sparsely populated area of dry, brown ranch lands.

Fire Inspector Keith Mora tells KCAL-TV that 190 firefighters have been dispatched along with firefighting helicopters and airplanes.

Three homes have been evacuated, although they were not in imminent danger.

Despite a storm two weeks ago, Southern California has returned to drought conditions.
