AZUSA, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire has burned at least 40 acres in the San Gabriel Mountains above Azusa and could threaten a condominium complex if winds shift the blaze south.
U.S. Forest Service spokeswoman L'Tanga Watson says the fire began shortly before 6 p.m. Monday and was moving along a ridge toward the Angeles National Forest.
Dozens of firefighters were aided by water-dropping helicopters and other aircraft as a large, gray plume of smoke billowed above.
Watson says there are condos less than a mile away in a canyon but the fire would have to reverse its course and head south for any immediate danger. She adds the weather conditions were ideal for firefighting with light winds and temperatures expected to be cool overnight.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
