Firefighters are making good progress on the Holy Fire burning in Southern California.
The fire is burning in the Cleveland National Forest just west of Lake Elsinore.
It started Aug. 6 and has burned nearly 23,000 acres. It is 59 percent contained as of Tuesday and full containment is expected by Aug. 21. Several evacuation orders have been lifted and roads reopened.
On Monday, Los Padres National Forest firefighters assigned to the Holy Fire paused to help a young deer that was exhausted by the heat and dehydrated. They gave her some of their water before she went on her way.
