Wildfire season has come early to California – where emergency services are battling to control a fierce blaze raging along the coast north of Los Angeles.

The so-called “Springs Fire” and a series of other blazes erupted this week due to high temperatures and strong, erratic winds.

A force of more than 900 firefighters have been tackling the fast-moving “Springs Fire”,managing to contain around 10 percent of it by early morning on May 3.

The Ventura County fire department said several thousand homes remain under threat.
