TRABUCO CANYON, Calif. (KGTV) -- People throughout Orange County and in North San Diego County are taking to social media to share photos of the Holy Fire burning in Cleveland National Forest. 

The fire started as a seven to 10 acre fire in a canyon and, within three hours, grew to more than 1,000 acres.

The brush in the area hasn't burned in more than 40 years, leaving excess fuel for the blaze to burn through.
