LOS ANGELES (AP) - Wildfires have burned a cabin and more than 130 acres of brushland as Southern California roasts in a heat wave.

Flames erupted Friday afternoon in the Angeles National Forest near Glendora, where a 100-acre fire has burned a cabin and prompted campground evacuations.

A fire has burned 30 acres in Simi Valley hills flanked by hundreds of homes. Another fire has burned several acres in Poway in San Diego County.

No injuries are reported.

California’s drought has left brush tinder-dry and high temperatures aren’t helping.

It’s 91 in downtown Los Angeles - well above normal for the date - and the temperature topped 100 degrees in the San Fernando Valley and Riverside. It’s 112 degrees in Blythe and 110 in Palm Springs.

Forecasters say the heat will continue through Sunday.
