Firefighters are attacking a brush fire after flames spread from an overturned car burning in Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles.
Flames apparently spread from a car fire to nearby brush, burning at least 20 acres as it moved uphill. Video from NewsChopper4 showed a car overturned on its roof in the canyon.
Details about the apparent crash were not immediately available.
Smoke could be seen from miles around. No structures are threatened.
The fire is near Bouquet Reservoir, about 15 miles west of Palmdale. Water-dropping aircraft are re-filling at the reservoir.
The Forest Service earlier re-issued restrictions on fire-related activities entering Memorial Day weekend. California is facing a hot and dry summer after one of its driest late winters on record, which left hillsides covered in dry brush that can fuel wildfires.
