Multiple fires threatening homes in Diamond Bar [Updated]
According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the fire broke out sometime in the last hour south of the 60 Freeway near Phillips Ranch Road and Diamond Bar Boulevard.
It's unclear what caused the blaze, but officials said it was suspicious because there were several points of ignition.
TV footage showed a large plume of smoke and several fires burning near the freeway.
It's unclear whether there were evacuations.
[Updated at 12:36 p.m.: Fire officials made multiple water drops from aircrafts, which appeared to slow the march of the fire toward threatened homes.
A portion of the 60 Freeway has been closed so that fire officials can use lanes to fight the fire. Several people with asthma were being treated at Diamond Ranch High School.
A Pomona Unified School District spokesman did not know whether the high school was being evacuated.
More than 250 firefighters are on the scene.]
