The Saddleridge Fire started near the 210 Freeway Thursday Oct. 10, 2019 in the Sylmar area north of Los Angeles. Strong winds pushed the fire west through rugged terrain toward the communities of Porter Ranch and Granada Hills, forcing evacuations affecting about 100,000 people and damaging homes.
The map above shows where the fire is burning and provides a look at how it compares with the November 2008 Sayre Fire, also known as the Sylmar Fire, and the October 2008 Sesnon Fire.
The Sayre Fire destroyed nearly 500 residences and burned more than 11,000 acres in roughly the same area. The Sesnon Fire burned north of Porter Ranch and burned into Ventura County.
