Hundreds of firefighters are trying to put out two wildfires which are tearing through parts of southern California. Dozens of homes have already been destroyed. People have been told to get out of their homes.

Emergency crews are using water-dropping planes, but these flames are moving fast. Changing winds are also causing trouble for firefighters.

A Red Cross shelter has been set up for people who have been forced out of their homes.
