GLENDORA (AP) — The Federal Emergency Management Agency has authorized funding to help fight the wildfire that’s destroyed two homes in the foothills east of Los Angeles.

COMPLETE COVERAGE: Colby Fire

FEMA says Thursday that it will make money available to reimburse up to 75 percent of certain firefighting costs.

The state submitted a request for aid in battling the fire above Glendora, which has charred at least 2½ square miles of brush. Several thousand people have been ordered to evacuate.

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning of extreme fire danger through Friday because of dry, hot weather and gusty Santa Ana winds.
