Fire breaks out at homeless encampment south of Los Angeles, causing major traffic jams


Firefighters are battling a brush fire they believe started at a homeless encampment in southern California.

Footage of the blaze shows large clouds of smoke billowing alongside a busy Los Angeles County freeway Thursday evening.

Although dramatic looking, the fire, which spanned approximately four acres, wasn’t a threat to any structures. However, it did shutdown Interstates 605 and 105, causing major traffic jams.

The fire comes as temperatures are on the rise in LA, with some areas forecast to reach triple-digit heat this weekend.

California is also in the peak of its wildfire season, which meteorologists say has grown longer over the years due to dry conditions and above normal temperatures caused by climate change.
