Fire Burns Through California’s Angeles National Forest

GLENDORA, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters are still battling a wildfire that’s burning in California’s Angeles National Forest.

It has burned 3,600 acres, or roughly 5 1/2 square miles, and officials have set up a team to map out a long-term strategy to battle the blaze.

Park campgrounds have been off-limits to visitors since Sunday because of firefighters’ road blocks, but the fire is moving away from inhabited areas. Many residents in a private mobile home community also were evacuated Sunday, but up to 75 residents have chosen to stay in their homes.

In Northern California, firefighters are focusing on the rugged and remote northern edge of a weeks-old fire in Mendocino County. That blaze has scorched more than 65 square miles.
