CA wildfire getting under control

Posted: Updated:

Fire officials continue their steady progress in surrounding a wildfire near Los Angeles that has destroyed several homes.
    
The Los Angeles County Fire Department said Sunday that it had contained 78 percent of the blaze, up from 61 percent on Saturday.
    
Full containment is not expected until Wednesday.
    
Meanwhile, the last evacuees were allowed to return Saturday evening to their homes in the city of Azusa, about 25 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.
    
The fire erupted early Thursday in the Angeles National Forest when Santa Ana winds hit a campfire that authorities said was recklessly set by three men.
    
The flames have charred an area about 3-square-miles in size and destroyed five homes.
