Southern California's wildfire roars back to life again and prompts new evacuations as 'hurricane-force gusts' and dry conditions continue threat looming over area

Just when it seemed things were finally starting to calm down, Southern California's huge wildfire has roared back to life again.

A massive plume rose suddenly in the Santa Monica Mountains on Tuesday morning, prompting new evacuations at the same time thousands of residents are being allowed back in their neighborhoods.

Authorities sent aircraft to drop retardant and water on the new blaze as it broke out near the community of Lake Sherwood.

Forecasters had warned of continuing fire danger in Southern California due to persistent Santa Ana winds, the withering, dry gusts that sweep out of the interior toward the coast, pushing back moist ocean breezes.
