A wildfire in California has burned at least 100 acres Wednesday morning.

The fire broke out in Fontana, northwest of Interstate 15 and gusty winds were pushing it west to the mountains and canyons.

Fire officials say they told residents in about 100 homes near a Buddhist temple that they might want to evacuate but were not being ordered to do so.

More than 300 firefighters were on the scene and water drops from aircraft were coming after sunrise.

Southern California was experiencing strong Santa Ana winds a week after similar conditions spurred several major wildfires.
