The first blaze broke out near Azusa and prompted a mandatory evacuation of the Mountain Cove community, the L.A. Times reports. While firefighters responded to the scene, a separate fire began nearby in Duarte, prompting evacuations of nearby homes. According to the L.A. County Fire Department, responders are working in very dry conditions and temperatures above 100 degrees.
