ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Fire crews are battling a 25-acre wildfire in the Angeles National Forest just north of Arcadia that forced the evacuation of a boy scout camp.
Sean O'Connor with the Arcadia Fire Department says the blaze
was reported just after 1:40 p.m. Saturday in a wooded area off
Santa Anita Canyon Road. No homes are threatened and there have
been no injuries.
In San Diego County, a brush fire in the Tijuana River Valley is under control after burning about 25 acres in two hours, briefly threatening homes.
They are the largest of several wildfires that have broken out all over Southern California as hot, dry temperatures move in.
