The fire kicked off on Saturday afternoon due to extremely high temperatures and has spread 400-acres, putting many people at risk.

Near record temperatures are believed to be the blame for the start of the fire, but with winds slowing down the hope is that authorities will be able to contain the blaze by the middle of the week.

Some 500 homeos have been forced to go under mandatory evacuation order though to try and keep everyone safe.
