Williams Fire Slowing

Higher humidity and calm winds have slowed down the 32,000-acre Williams fire northeast of Los Angeles. But it still presents a threat to Mount Baldy Village and to homes in the LA suburbs to the south. Fire officials say the blaze is moving forward at about a quarter-mile a day and is still several miles from Mount Baldy. Other than water and retardant drops, the fire is being allowed to burn, while nearly all-available firefighters build protective lines around Mount Baldy Village. The fire, which is 35% contained, has destroyed 71 cabins and other buildings since it ignited Sunday.
