Brush fire burning in the Angeles National Forest north of Monrovia



On Sunday afternoon, a bushfire broke out in the Angeles National Forest north of Monrovia, sending a large cloud of smoke into the air that could be seen for miles.

The so-called Bobcat fire started just after Sunday noon near Cogswell Dam and has set fire to about 500 acres, US Forest Service officials said. Water-dripping helicopters and several tanker planes were dispatched to put out the flames.

Firemen across the county acted swiftly to contain a bushfire at Hansen Dam in the San Fernando Valley for five acres.

Firefighters are being handicapped by a record-breaking heat wave sweeping the state this Labor Day weekend causing temperatures in the triple digits in many areas. The mercury hit 1

03 on Sunday afternoon in the area where firefighters were fighting the Bobcat fire.

Meanwhile, the Fresno County’s Creek Fire has burned more than 36,000 acres and the San Bernardino County’s El Dorado Fire has charred more than 2,700 acres. In San Diego County, the Valley Fire consumed more than 4,000 acres.
