The Associated Press (AP) is claiming a California wildfire crossed a freeway and burned cars in its wake.
Fanned by hot desert winds, the fire started along Interstate 15 — the main road to Las Vegas — and torched the vehicles as motorists fled on foot to safety. No serious injuries have been reported.
The fire spread quickly, growing to 3,500 acres and threatening the rural community of Baldy Mesa north of the freeway.
An evacuation center was set up at the local school.
