April 20, 2013|By A Times Staff Writer

The brush fire in the hills around Monrovia has been captured in several YouTube videos.

The fire sent a large plume of smoke into the air that could be seen across the San Gabriel Valley.

As of 6 p.m., the fire had burned 150 acres, and at least 100 homes have been evacuated as a precautionary measure, officials said.

The fire spread from the backyard of a home near Crescent Drive and Madison Avenue, where it was apparently ignited by a spark from a gardening tool about 11 a.m., McLain said.
