The fire, which has been dubbed the?Lake Fire, ? is reported to be at zero percent containment as of 4:09 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Fire Public Information Officer Twitter.

No mandatory evacuations were in place, Licon said.

Almost 400 firefighters from the U.S. Forest Service and the Los Angeles County Fire Department were working to douse the flames, which broke out for unknown reasons about 2 p.m. Saturday near the Golden State (5) Freeway and Ridge Route Road.

No homes were threatened, but two outbuildings were destroyed the previous day, officials said.

At 5:30 p.m. Saturday, officials were reporting "zero containment at which point, the air assault intensified".

Firefighters were concerned about the flames spreading due to hot, dry conditions.

By late Saturday afternoon, the firefight was predominantly being fought by aircraft according to Fire Inspector Richard Licon, who described the fire at one point as "moving very quickly".

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says the 10-acre fire is 20 percent contained. The fire was 60% contained Monday morning, Angeles National Forest tweeted. Temperatures will hover in the 80s downtown and will be even cooler the closer you are to the beach, Fisher said.

Some fire resources are being relieved as of 9 a.m. Sunday, but it's more due to the access concerns for vehicles, and a reduced need for structure protection crews where the fire is now burning, according to Nathan Judy of the Angeles National Forest Service.

L.A. County fire officials are reporting the Lake Fire has reached 550 acres.
