Wildfires North Of Los Angeles In Santa Clarita, California Seem Under Control At This Hour, Highlight Hollywood News

Crews battling a wildfire in the mountains north of Los Angeles are taking advantage of cool morning weather to make progress but scattered flames continue to climb hillsides.

A flare up prompted authorities to briefly evacuate about 25 homes along a canyon road in the Angeles National Forest Friday morning but residents were later allowed to return.



U.S. Forest Service spokesman Nathan Judy says the 1,400-acre blaze north of Castaic is 15 percent contained and about 600 crews, aided by air tankers, want to make more progress before hot, dry weather sets in this afternoon.



He says the blaze is burning near power lines although utilities report no damage.
