Tenaja fire threatening homes in southern California

Firefighters in southern California are battling the Tenaja fire, which has scorched almost a thousand acres since erupting on Wednesday.

The blaze in Riverside County - southeast of Los Angeles - prompted mandatory evacuations in the community of La Cresta.

In nearby Murrieta, residents were also preparing to leave.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ELLA PHILLIPS, MURRIETA RESIDENT, SAYING: "It's actually been very scary, watching it from afar.

It was down at the very end of the canyon.

We thought it was out, then all of a sudden it picked right back up." (SOUNDBITE) (English) BILL DYER, MURRIETA RESIDENT, SAYING: "All of the cars are loaded and everything is ready, so if need be.

We have places to go." Hot and windy conditions have been fueling the fire, which so far, has burned mostly grass and brush.

No homes have been damaged yet, but CalFire Captain Fernando Herrera says that could change at any time.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) CAPT.

FERNANDO HERRERA, CALFIRE, SAYING: "This is the time people need to heed, make sure they need to prepare, don't wait until the last minute, don't wait for the mandatory evacuation, it may be too late." The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
