Hundreds of firefighters in southern California are working to contain a wildfire which has led to the evacuation of more than 1,000 homes north-west of Los Angeles.
Extremely dry conditions and unpredictable winds have stoked the brush fire. The wall of flames is moving slowly towards the coastal resort of Malibu.
