Wildfire north of Los Angeles growing

(AP) -

A wildfire burning in the mountainous Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles has grown to more than 17 square miles.

U.S. Forest Service spokesman Nathan Judy says the fire is only 10 percent contained Saturday.

Judy says the Wildlife Waystation, a private sanctuary for rescued exotic animals, is being evacuated.

The Wildlife Waystation has about 400 animals on 160 acres within the national forest.

Its Facebook page is appealing for flatbed and enclosed trucks as well as an air-conditioned warehouse to keep the animals cool.
