Sylmar fire: Dozens of homes lost

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has declared a local emergency. "We know that we've lost dozens of structures," he said at the fire command center in Sylmar this morning.

Westward that fire goes: The LAPD say the area under mandatory evacuation orders in the Sylmar and Granada Hills areas includes foothill areas in a broad arc from Pacoima Canyon west to Reseda Boulevard. That includes areas north and east of Foothill Boulevard in the Olive View area, and north of Sesnon Boulevard between Balboa and Reseda boulevards.
