Wildfire in Suburban L.A. 84% Contained

Posted: Updated:

Crews continue to build containment lines around a wildfire near Los Angeles that destroyed several homes.
 
The U.S. Forest Service said Monday the fire in the San Gabriel Mountains is 84% contained, with full containment expected Wednesday.
 
The roughly 3-square-mile blaze destroyed six homes and 10 outbuildings after erupting Thursday in the Angeles National Forest. Flames spread quickly when Santa Ana winds hit a campfire that authorities said was recklessly set by three men.
 
Some 3,700 residents of Glendora and Azusa had to evacuate at the fire's peak.

Officials caution that bone-dry winter conditions remain a threat for the region. (AP)
