A raging wildfire is forcing some residents and at least three schools to evacuate Wednesday.

The Etiwanda Fire is burning about 40 miles east of Los Angeles.

The flames were first spotted early Wednesday, just north of the 210 Freeway.

So far it has burned at least 200 acres.

Unpredictable 60-mile-per-hour winds are driving the fire and keeping crews away.

Officials have not yet determined what began the fire.
