Los Angeles, California (CNN) — Firefighters continued to battle a wildfire Saturday as flames encroached on power lines that provide electricity throughout the region.

Authorities said that they had lifted evacuation orders and most residents had returned home, while hundreds of firefighters and more than a dozen aircraft worked to extinguish the so-called Crown Fire.

The blaze has ignited more than 13,000 acres in the Los Angeles County area, fire officials said. Two other fires have blackened more than 17,000 acres.

Fire officials said the Crown Fire, which is about 20 percent contained, represents the biggest challenge.

On Friday, about 1,370 firefighters and 250 fire engines were at the scene of the blaze, which was burning in a sparsely populated, rural area.
