Latest LA Fire
Authorities have issued a warning to the public Friday after they say two flying drones disrupted wildfire operations in Southern California this week.
The blaze about 90 miles east of Los Angeles has charred 36 square miles of timber and brush since June 17. As of Thursday, it was only 21 percent contained.
The Lake Fire reportedly had grown to 17,405 acres and was 30 percent contained as of 6 a.m. Tuesday.
A high pressure system that pushed temperatures into the triple digits in SoCal over the weekend is drifting east, allowing a gradual cooling trend into the middle of the week.
As high winds continue to blow through Southern California, the Red Flag fire warning has firefighters on high alert.
