Mandatory evacuation orders are in place for Lopez Canyon, Kagel Canyon and Little Tujunga Canyon, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Cabrera said.

As the smoke cleared at a Sylmar community Wednesday devastated by the fast-moving Creek Fire, the remains of 29 horses who died were discovered. She and her family were given just enough time to gather some necessities but not their horses, Padilla said.

An estimated 2,500 structures were threatened by the Creek Fire at one point, according to the U.S. Forest Service, which was fighting the blaze in a unified command with the Los Angeles city and county fire departments.

LAFD Chief Ralph Terrazas warned that the battle was likely to continue until at least Friday.
