These are live pictures of a wildfire raging in the Rancho Palos Verdes Area, South of Los Angeles.The seaside community is about 20 miles South of Downtown Los Angeles. The fire broke out just before eight o'clock Thursday night.

The wildfire has forced evacuations tonight for dozens of homes, and we've seen what looks like several pricey homes being destroyed by flames.

The fire is also burning just a mile from a golf resort owned by Donald Trump.

Helicopter pilots say the fire is burning extremely hot, as it climbs up canyon walls.

At least 200 firefighters are battling the flames, and it's consumed at least 30 acres.
