Valley firefighters with the US Forest Service are helping battle the Powerhouse Fire in Los Angeles County.
The local crews were originally sent to the White Fire in the Los Padres National Forest, but when that blaze died down, they headed to Santa Clarita.
Sierra National Forest Fire Chief Joseph Reyes said, "Powerhouse Fire is a large scale incident and we have sent resources, firefighters and equipment, to help with the suppression, evacuation and eventually mop-up of the incident."
It is not uncommon for crews to get diverted to other locations.
The Powerhouse Fire started Thursday afternoon and has grown to over 32,000 acres and has destroyed at least six homes and damaged several others.
The fire is now 60% contained and the 3,000 evacuated residents have been allowed to return.
