Southern California fire burns 4 homes

Monday, September 24, 2012

A fire in Southern California is growing Monday morning, forcing people to evacuate near the Mexican border.

The "Shockey" fire has burned more than 1,700 acres since it began Saturday afternoon. Fire fighters say wind is helping to drive the flames, and the remote location of the fire is making it difficult to fight.

At least four homes have burned, and people living in the area have been evacuated to a nearby high school. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
