Firefighters rushed to gain control of a fast-moving wildfire in the mountainous Angeles National Forest in an area east of Los Angeles on Thursday that has damaged at least one home and led to the evacuation of nearby residents, a fire official said. The blaze broke out about an hour before sunrise in the Angeles National Forest north of Glendora and quickly spread to 125 acres, Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman Keith Mora said. Firefighters have so far been unable to build containment lines against the flames.
