A fire broke out in L.A.'s Santa Clarita Valley on Friday and spanned over 22,000 acres by Saturday morning, according to The Los Angeles Times. Over 900 firefighters were on the scene, struggling to contain it.

After years of drought, the fire, which is being referred to as the Sand Fire, spread quickly throughout the dry forest and 1,500 homes had to be evacuated. A dead body was found nearby, though the cause of death hasn't been confirmed.

The fire got so strong that many L.A. residents could see smoke in the sky. Celebrities have posted photos to Instagram showing its far-reaching effects. Mandy Moore even called the city's appearance "apocalyptic."
