Where is the La Tuna / Burbank fire now? The La Tuna Fire began on the north side of La Tuna Canyon Road in California around 1 p.m. local time on Friday, ABC 10 reported. But then it quickly spread east and across the 210 Freeway. By late Saturday morning, the fire had spread to nearly 5,000 acres and was only 10 percent contained. Officials said the fire would burn at least into Saturday, but they were hopeful that they could get it under control. As of Saturday afternoon, the LAFD had reported that approximately 300 homes in Burbank, 250 in Glendale, and 180 in Los Angeles were under evacuation notice.
