Wildfire Still Raging In Angeles

Hot, windy weather is a major concern for firefighters battling a blaze in the Angeles National Forest, about 50 miles north of Los Angeles. The fire that quickly spread through 32-hundred acres of dry brush and trees has threatened dozens of recreational cabins.

Los Angeles County Fire Captain Brian Jordan said of today´s effort to contain the blaze: “We´re looking at temperatures in the low 90s, single-digit humidity and winds that could gust up to 35 miles per hour.” The fire was only 15 percent contained today in hilly terrain near the Bouquet Reservoir, in a sparsely populated area about 25 miles east of Interstate 5.
