More than 5,000 Southern California homes were evacuated Monday as fire crews struggled to battle a rapidly growing brush fire.

The blaze has scorched 6,000 acres and destroyed dozens of structures in Orange County.

Plumes of smoke were visible over Disneyland and officials issued air quality warnings for parts of Los Angeles County. An Anaheim police spokesman says there is no containment so far.

The firestorm consuming the state has killed at least 10 people and injured at least a hundred.
