UPDATE 11:35 a.m. Thursday, August 9, 2018 - (AP) At least 20,000 foothill and canyon residents have evacuated as a growing wildfire churns through the Cleveland National Forest south of Los Angeles.

Fire spokeswoman Kate Kramer says Thursday that the majority of the 15-square-mile (39-square-kilometer) blaze is burning in wildland areas. But officials are concerned about flames creeping down hillsides toward neighborhoods. The fire is just 5 percent contained.

Kramer says crews with air support are also trying to keep flames away from Santiago Peak, where critical communication infrastructure for the region is located.

Officials say heavy smoke settling on surrounding communities is creating unhealthy conditions.

A 51-year-old man arrested on suspicion of arson in connection with the so-called Holy Fire is expected in court Thursday.

Voluntary evacuation warnings are in place for Highway 74 (Ortega Highway) West from Lookout Restaurant at Nichols Institute and all connecting roads in the communities of Rancho Capistrano, El Cariso Village and Blue Jay are under voluntary Evacuation Warning.

Residents should exit west to Orange County to avoid fire equipment coming up on the Elsinore side.
