Several homes have been destroyed by the Bobcat Fire as it spreads in California.

According to authorities, the fire near Los Angeles County has burned over 90,000 acres of land and was 15% contained on Sunday.

Erratic winds pushed the flames into the Juniper Hills community, burning several semi-rural properties there. Evacuation orders were issued in the foothills north of the blaze on Saturday afternoon.

“It’s really, really sad out here, honestly,” said Littlerock resident Genovio Ascencio. “I feel sorry for all the people going through this right now.”

Officials have predicted the fire may not be fully contained until October 30th.
