Los Angeles saw some of its worst wildfires in years over the US Labor Day weekend. The La Tuna Canyon wildfire scorched more than 7,000 acres. As of Tuesday (Sept. 5) morning, it is mostly contained, after some cooler, wetter weather.
Local authorities warn that increasing winds might fuel a resurgence. Mayor Erik Garcetti tweeted on Saturday that the La Tuna fire is the largest in the city’s history.
As many as 19 large wildfires have been burning across California, reports USA Today.
