Unseasonably Dry Weather Aids Wildfire in Southern California

A blaze that was allegedly set by a trio of people tossing papers into a campfire scorched about 1,700 acres today in the Angeles National Forest north of Glendora, destroying five homes and leaving three people, including two firefighters, with minor injuries. Unseasonably dry weather conditions and heat helped accelerate the spread of the fire. KPFK’s Larry Buhl reports.
