At least 20 homes have been destroyed after a fire, dubbed the Coastal Fire, erupted in Orange County, Calif., according to Orange County Fire Authority Chief Brian Fennessy. The cause of the fire, which stretched about 200 acres as of Thursday morning, remains under investigation.

Orange County Fire Authority public information officer Capt. Greg Barta said about 550 firefighters were battling the fire.

"Crews worked diligently and very hard throughout the night and made great progress," Barta said in a video on social media Thursday morning. "We expect that to continue today."

One firefighter was injured while combatting the blaze and was taken to a hospital, said assistant chief of field operations for Orange County Fire Authority TJ McGovern.
