WRIGHTWOOD, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters are taking advantage of cool fall weather as they increase containment of a blaze near the mountain community of Wrightwood.
The fire in the San Bernardino Mountains is 85 percent contained Wednesday night and it hasn't grown. Evacuation orders for thousands of people were lifted on Tuesday.
The fire burned one home and 7,128 acres of brush and timber, or more than 11 square miles.
National Weather Service forecaster Andrew Rorke says the high temperature Thursday will be about 58 — a couple of degrees warmer than Wednesday, but Rorke says winds are light and good firefighting weather is expected to continue.
