LATEST BOBCAT FIRE EVACUATIONS

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Hundreds of crew members are continuing to monitor the Bobcat Fire, which has burned several thousand acres since it began earlier this month.

Containment Monday dropped to 62% and had grown to at least 114,200 acres, fueled by chaparral, brush and tall grass.

The fire is located near the Cogswell Dam and West Fork Day Use area with main fire progression in the northeast near Mt. Lewis.

Containment dates are based on resource availability, officials said, but the expected date for full containment still stands at Oct. 30.

No repopulation announcements have been made in the immediate area surrounding the fire.
