Firefighters gain on Southern California blazes

Firefighters gained ground Sunday against three wildfires burning across Southern California but worried about hot winds expected over the next few days.

A 1,045-acre (423-hectare) fire in Burbank was 67 percent contained after firefighters - aided by cooler, overnight breezes - made significant progress, said firefighter Capt. Ron Bell.

Residents were allowed back into about 70 homes in Sunset Canyon that had been evacuated as a precaution. Bell said firefighters were still concerned about a forecast for warmer winds that could bring 50 mph (80 kph) gusts.

Elsewhere, more than 1,000 emergency personnel were fighting a fire in steep, rugged terrain in and around San Bernardino National Forest, about 70 miles (110 kilometers) east of Los Angeles.

The 935-acre (380-hectare) fire was 60 percent contained Sunday but had the potential to flare up in windy conditions because of dead trees and grass in the area, according to a U.S. Forest Service update.

A wildfire that torched more than 24,000 acres (9,600 hectares) on the border of Los Angeles and Ventura counties was 65 percent contained and cooler weather helped firefighters as they tried to extinguish hot spots, said a fire dispatcher, AP reports.
