Big fire burned about 70 vehicles over Interstate 15, in California


Helicopters dropped water and fire retardant materials from overhead. At least five drones were used at the site of the blaze. Several firefighting aircraft were delayed or diverted until the drones moved out of the area. Some areas were evacuated in the Cajon Pass area along the freeway, about 55 miles northeast of Los Angeles. The blaze was still only five per cent contained as of Saturday morning. Fortunately, only two people were injured due to smoke inhalation.A second blaze that started Friday night in the San Gabriel Mountains, about 20 miles to the northwest of the other fire calmed overnight after firefighters’ intervention.
Firefighters focus now on protecting some 700 homes in the Baldy Mesa area, where about 2,800 people were evacuated.
