California Forest Fire Under Control


A wildfire burns on State Highway 118 near the McDonald Observatory not far from Ft. Davis, Texas. Wildfires have been buring out of control in West Texas since Saturday.

Authorities lifted an evacuation order for parts of Southern California on Saturday, after firefighters brought a forest fire under control. On Friday, the fire in Cajon Pass had been zero percent contained, but it was about 60 percent under control by Saturday afternoon. Authorities lifted the evacuation order at 2 p.m. on Saturday, though about 1,150 acres were still burning. The fire destroyed two mobile homes and damaged two smaller structures. About 750 firefighters were involved in fighting the fire, two of whom required medical treatment, but one was heat-related.
