By Saturday afternoon two evacuation warnings in the Littlerock area were lifted, the Angeles National Forest and the Los Angeles County Sheriff&#8217;s Department said.</p> <p>These were lifted at 4 p.m.:</p> <p>&#8211;South of Highway 138, north of Weber Ranch Road, east of Cheseboro Road, and west of 87th Street E.</p> <p>&#8211;South of Highway 138, south and east of Highway 122 (Sierra Hwy/Pearblossom), north and west of Mount Emma Road, west of Cheseboro Road, north and east of Angeles Forest Highway</p> <p>Evacuation orders remained in place for:</p> <p>•  Paradise Springs &#8212; South of Big Pines Highway, east of Devil&#8217;s Punchbowl, west of largo Vista Road, and north of the forest.</p> <p>•  South and west of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon, east of Angeles forest Highway, and north of Angeles Crest Highway</p> <p>•  Residences along Angeles Crest Highway, between Angeles Forest Highway and Highway 39.</p> <p>Evacuation warnings continued for:</p> <p>•  South of Big Pines Highway, east of largo Vista Road, west of 263rd Street E (County line), and north of the forest.</p> <p>•  South of Mount Emma Road, nonh of Upper Big Tujunga Canyon. east of Angeles Forest Highway and west of Pacifico Mountain.</p> <p>•   East Fork Areas: Julius Klein Conservation camp 19, Camp Williams, and the River Community.</p> <p>•  The community of Wrightwood.</p> <p>Some 1,554 personnel assigned to the fire spent the night patrolling the fire area and putting out hot spots, U.S. Forest Service officials said. Priority areas for the weekend included Mt. Wilson to Highway 2, Dorr Canyon and Rock Creek Road to ensure containment lines will hold if Santa Ana winds forecast for early next week materialize. Full containment is not expected until Wednesday.</p> <p>&#8220;Residents will continue to see smoke from burning islands within the perimeters. Engines will remain available in the north for smoke checks near the communities,&#8221; Forest Service officials said.</p> <p>The Red Cross evacuation centers at Palmdale High School and Santa Anita Park are now closed. Anyone still needing assistance was advised to call the Disaster Distress Hotline at 800-675-5799.</p> <p>A South Coast Air Quality Management District&#8217;s smoke advisory was extended through Sunday afternoon.</p> <p>&#8220;It is difficult to tell where smoke, ash or soot from a fire will go, or how winds will affect the level of these particles in the air, so we ask everyone to remember that smoke and ash can be harmful to health, even for people who are healthy,&#8221; said Dr. Muntu Davis, health officer for Los Angeles County. &#8220;If you can see smoke, soot, or ash, or you can smell smoke, pay attention to your immediate environment and take precautions to safeguard your health. These precautions are particularly important for children, older adults, and people with heart or lung diseases.&#8221;</p> <p>U.S. Forest Service officials are investigating an equipment issue experienced by <a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/09/23/bobcat-fire-containment-jumps-up-as-fire-crews-make-headway/">Southern California Edison</a> around the time the fire broke out to determine if it was a factor in sparking one of the largest wildfires in Los Angeles County history. The utility says it was not responsible for starting the blaze, insisting that fire was detected by a camera on Mt. Wilson a few minutes before it experienced an equipment issue.</p> <p>Firefighters earlier this week successfully set backfires, including from the air, to destroy vegetation fueling the blaze and protect the Mount Wilson Observatory and several broadcast and telecommunications towers.</p> <p>A closure order has been issued for national forests in Southern California, including the Angeles National Forest, which will be closed through Oct. 1, the U.S. Forest Service said.</p> <p>Flames have destroyed 138 structures and affected another 30, with eight sustaining minor damage and five major damage, according to a damage assessment provided by Los Angeles County officials. That map, which is compiled from ongoing field damage inspection and subject to change, can be viewed at <a href="https://lacounty.gov/recovery/damage-inspection/">lacounty.gov/recovery/damage-inspection/</a></p> <p>Of the buildings destroyed, 65 were residential, one was commercial and 72 were described as &#8220;other.&#8221;</p> <p>The Nature Center at the Devil&#8217;s Punchbowl Natural Area was burned by the fire, Los Angeles County parks officials said. The area is closed until further notice.</p> <p>The fire has burned more acres than the Woolsey fire of 2018, which scorched 96,271 acres. The Station fire in 2009 burned 160,577 acres.</p> <p>The Bobcat fire erupted on Sept. 6 near the Cogswell Dam and West Fork Day Use area northeast of Mount Wilson and within the Angeles National Forest.</p> <p><em>The San Gabriel Valley Tribune contributed to this story.</em></p> <aside class="related left"><h2 class="widget-title" data-curated-ids=""

Despite some close calls, no homes have been destroyed so far.</p> <p>Evacuations were ordered for residents in the foothill areas just north of the fire, including for the community of Juniper Hills in the southeast Antelope Valley.</p> <p>Residents in Paradise Springs, including the areas east of Devils Punchbowl Road, south of Big Pines Highway, north of the Big Rock Creek and west of Jackson Lake were also told to evacuate.</p> <p>“We’re all set, we packed early this morning, we got everything together, all of our valuables, things we wanted to have, paperwork and stuff like that, pictures,&#8221; said Juniper Hills resident Peter Trono, who has lived in the area for 36 years.</p> <p>He said he and his 96-year-old mother are prepared to leave at a moment&#8217;s notice.</p> <div>“Last night, we saw the flames on the ridge line itself and that’s where we became really concerned,&#8221; he said. &#8220;I hope my neighbors all get out and they’re all safe, and I just pray we come back to a home and if we don’t, it’s just stuff, right?”</div> <p>The fire crossed Highway 2 near the junction with Highway 39, which is south of Juniper Hills, officials said.</p> <p>These are in addition to evacuation warnings which have been in place for several days now for the San Gabriel foothill communities of Monrovia, Bradbury, Sierra Madre, Arcadia, Altadena, Duarte and Pasadena.</p> <div>Fire officials said on Thursday that they are primarily fighting the fire with air drops to get a line around it.

Wilson and the southwestern edge of the fire remains active where crews continue to protect the Mt. Wilson Observatory infrastructure,” the U.S. Forest Service wrote on its incident information page Wednesday.</p> <p>At the north end of the fire, the focus was to try to contain the spot fires across Highway 2 after an approximately 1,000-acre spot fire crossed the highway Tuesday in the Cooper Canyon area.</p> <p>Meanwhile, <a href="https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/09/17/all-california-national-forests-remain-closed-through-weekend/">all 18 National Forests in California will remain closed through at least Monday</a>, Sept. 21, due to the historic number of wildfires burning up and down the state.

The fire is churning through thick vegetation and dry brush in steep terrain, some of which has not burned in more 60 years.</p> <p>The cause is under investigation.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the South Coast Air Quality Management District extended a smoke advisory into Thursday for nearly all of L.A.

Wilson, where they have so far successfully defended the priceless, historic telescopes atop the mountain, officials said.</p> <p>Crews were still buffeted by flames on Wednesday on at least two sides when reporters were taken up to the summit, but firefighters kept the blaze at bay.</p> <p>They continued to cut containment lines and planned to do more controlled burns to get rid of fuel before the fire got any closer to the peak.</p> <p>Visibility was poor on Wednesday afternoon, but officials on the scene hoped the smoke would clear somewhat to bring in more air support when needed.</p> <p>“It’s going to be tough, but it would be ideal,” Los Angeles County Battallion Chief Stan Brewer said in an interview Wednesday, standing on top of a lookout point on Mount Wilson.</p> <h4>TRASK SCOUT RESERVATION</h4> <p>The Trask Scout Reservation was saved by fire crews who have worked tirelessly for days now, Monrovia firefighter Jeremy Phipps said in an interview Wednesday.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="500" data-dnt="true"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">This is a video Monrovia Fire and Rescue took as they successfully defended the Trask Scout Reservation in Monrovia Canyon Park. <a href="https://twitter.com/Monrovia_Fire?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@monrovia_fire</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/bobcatfire?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#bobcatfire</a> <a href="https://t.co/C6nYL5fBtg">pic.twitter.com/C6nYL5fBtg</a></p> <p>&mdash; Bradley Bermont (@bradleybermont) <a href="https://twitter.com/bradleybermont/status/1306375261483446272?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 16, 2020</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>Crews were stationed before the fire descended on the vacant Boy Scout camp days ago, he said.</p> <p>&#8220;Luckily, the way the fire was burning, it wasn&#8217;t a wind-driven fire, it was terrain-driven,&#8221; which meant it moved much slower, Phipps said.</p> <p>Crews were able to coat the ground immediately surrounding the camp in fire retardant, keeping the fire at bay with water lines.</p> <p>Firefighters were still stationed there on Wednesday, though the major danger had passed.</p> <h4>CANYON PARK NATURE CENTER</h4> <p>Monrovia&#8217;s Canyon Park Nature Center was saved in a similar fashion, Phipps said. The fire got close, but crews were able to keep the flames at bay.</p> <p>&#8220;We were really lucky we didn&#8217;t have the winds,&#8221; Phipps said.</p> <p>The Canyon Park trail &#8212; a major hiking destination with a trailhead next to the Nature Center &#8212; has likely been damaged, Phipps said, but the city&#8217;s Parks Department will still need to go in there to do damage assessment.</p> <p>&#8220;We were able to keep it away from the cabin&#8221; near the hike, Phipps said, &#8220;but the trail system above it did get quite a lot of fire.&#8221;</p> <p>Right now, only fire crews are allowed back there, Phipps said. The narrow, winding roads are simply too dangerous and fire crews can&#8217;t risk having nonessential personnel getting stuck out there.</p> <p>As the fire chewed through decades of growth, whether it&#8217;s small bushes or large trees, it&#8217;s dislodging rocks that have been crashing down the mountain and blocking the road. Trees have fallen and blocked roads,  too, Phipps said.</p> <h4>CHANTRY FLATS</h4> <p>It&#8217;s the same story from Los Angeles County firefighter Richard Hilstein, who manages the permitting and inspections for the Chantry Flats cabins tucked deeper in the Angeles National Forest.</p> <p>Hilstein said he&#8217;s been fielding calls from cabin owners, all asking about their properties. He can&#8217;t say what state they&#8217;re in, though he doesn&#8217;t believe they&#8217;ve burned down. </p> <aside class="related right"> <h2 class="widget-title">Related links</h2> <ul> <li><a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/09/16/bobcat-fire-firefighters-continue-protecting-mt-wilson-observatory/">Bobcat fire: Some evacuation orders lifted for Arcadia, Sierra Madre — danger not over for Mount Wilson</a></li> <li><a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/09/15/with-mammoth-bobcat-fire-looming-firefighters-draw-battle-lines-along-mt-wilsons-steep-slopes/">With mammoth Bobcat fire looming, firefighters draw battle lines along Mt.

That will be coming up shortly,&#8221; after the fire is contained and crews have more manpower to devote to damage assessment.</p> <h4>STURTEVANT CAMP</h4> <p>It&#8217;s the same story for the Sturtevant Camp, near the Chantry Flats cabins, Los Angeles County firefighter David Dantic said on Wednesday.</p> <p>It&#8217;s simply too dangerous for anyone except fire crews to go in there Those fire crews aren&#8217;t doing damage assessment; they&#8217;re just trying to save as many structures as much as they can.</p> <p>Right now, firefighters have very little containment on the expanding Bobcat fire, and they&#8217;re severely strapped for resources.</p> <p>Once the situation improves, Dantic said, it will be more feasible to get boots on the ground to assess any possible damage to these landmark sites.</p> Bobcat fire: New evacuation warning issued for Antelope Valley areas — danger not over for Mount Wilson https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/16/bobcat-fire-firefighters-continue-protecting-mt-wilson-observatory/ Arcadia – Daily Breeze urn:uuid:503ce8ce-734e-9d27-e99e-6d4d128c0790 Wed, 16 Sep 2020 21:34:41 +0000 Fire crews, helped by air drops, continue to protect the 116-year-old Mount Wilson Observatory and the $1 billion-plus communications infrastructure there. <p>As <a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/09/15/with-mammoth-bobcat-fire-looming-firefighters-draw-battle-lines-along-mt-wilsons-steep-slopes/">daylight broke over Mount Wilson on Wednesday, Sept. 16,</a> authorities said firefighters held off <a href="https://scng-dash.digitalfirstmedia.com/tag/bobcat-fire/">the mammoth-sized Bobcat fire,</a> preventing it from reaching the mountain summit, protecting history-making telescopes and billions of dollars worth of communications equipment through the night.</p> <p>But the danger is far from over. New evacuation warnings were issued Wednesday evening for people in the Antelope Valley as the fire continued to spread north and deeper into the forest. Residents of Juniper Hills south of Fort Tejon Road and east of 96th Street East  were advised to get ready to evacuate by  officials. People living east and south of Valyermo Road and west of Bobs Gap Road should also prepare to evacuate. Large animals can be left while space is available at the Antelope Valley Fair and Event Center at 2551 West Avenue H in Lancaster.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="500" data-dnt="true"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BobcatFire?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#BobcatFire</a> Evacuation Warning issued for the residents of Juniper Hills:<br />-South of Fort Tejon Rd, east of 96th Street East and south of Valyermo Road west of Bobs Gap Rd. <a href="https://t.co/sRwKo7lPti">https://t.co/sRwKo7lPti</a></p> <p>&mdash; Angeles_NF (@Angeles_NF) <a href="https://twitter.com/Angeles_NF/status/1306442666847039489?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 17, 2020</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div class="article-slideshow"><button class="icon-close"></button><ul data-total="9"><li data-index="1"><div class="image-wrapper"><img width="1024" height="683" src="https://www.dailybreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SGT-L-BOBCAT-MOUNT-0917-04-1.jpg" class="attachment-article_inline size-article_inline lazyload" alt="" loading="lazy" draggable="false" data-sizes="auto" data-srcset="https://www.dailybreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SGT-L-BOBCAT-MOUNT-0917-04-1.jpg?w=620 620w,https://www.dailybreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SGT-L-BOBCAT-MOUNT-0917-04-1.jpg?w=780 780w,https://www.dailybreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SGT-L-BOBCAT-MOUNT-0917-04-1.jpg?w=810 810w,https://www.dailybreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SGT-L-BOBCAT-MOUNT-0917-04-1.jpg?w=630 630w" data-src="https://www.dailybreeze.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/SGT-L-BOBCAT-MOUNT-0917-04-1.jpg" /><p class="slide-credit"></p><p class="slide-caption">Firefighters worked to extinguish spot fires along Highway 2 after a blaze tore through the area on Tuesday during the Bobcat fire in Angeles National Forest on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020.

County fire spokesman David Dantic said in an interview. “There’s a lot of green, but don’t let that fool you. That’s very dry brush, and it’s very steep terrain.”</p> <p>At this point, the fire has made something akin to horseshoe shape, leaving a thumbprint of untouched national forest land.</p> <p>&#8220;We want to keep it that way and contain the fire from every direction,&#8221; Dantic said. &#8220;Just trap it.&#8221;</p> <p>On top of Mount Wilson, multiple fire crews from several different stations were working on Wednesday &#8212; some were deep in the brush with chain saws, others were watching from elevated vantage points, tracking the fire&#8217;s progress. Visibility was difficult; it was easier to hear the fire than to see it.</p> <p>But make no mistake, the fire &#8220;is all around us,&#8221; Los Angeles County Battallion Chief Stan Brewer said in an interview Wednesday, standing on top of a lookout point on Mount Wilson.</p> <p>&#8220;If the smoke was clear, you&#8217;d see fire down there, over there, all over,&#8221; he said, moments before a ridge burst into flames, sounding like a blow torch.</p> <p>The mission was unchanged from Tuesday: Keep the fire from reaching the summit, Brewer said.</p> <p>Hand crews were digging containment lines, preparing to set controlled fires, while Brewer hoped the smoke would clear somewhat so air support could come in and blanket spots with fire retardants.</p> <p>&#8220;It&#8217;s going to be tough, but it would be ideal,&#8221; he said.</p> <p>In a sign of progress, Arcadia and Sierra Madre residents ordered to evacuate on Sunday were allowed to return starting at 4 p.m. Wednesday, authorities announced midday.</p> <p>&#8220;The hard work and efforts of the multi-agency firefighting crews, and cooperating partners resulted in lifting evacuation orders for residents north of Elkins (Avenue) and East of Santa Anita (Avenue) in the communities of Arcadia and Sierra Madre,&#8221; according to the Angeles National Forest.</p> <p>The news of lifted evacuations on Wednesday followed an eventful Tuesday when much of the firefighting efforts were focused on protecting the foothill communities and the iconic observatory – <a href="https://www.pasadenastarnews.com/2020/09/15/with-mammoth-bobcat-fire-looming-firefighters-draw-battle-lines-along-mt-wilsons-steep-slopes/">which had flames within 500 feet</a> – Angeles National Forest authorities said they were working to keep those gains.</p> <p>By Wednesday morning, the blaze had scorched 44,393 acres and remained at 3% containment. By evening, the fire had grown to 46,263 acres with containment still at 3%. Containment is the percentage of the perimeter where the blaze won&#8217;t expand beyond.</p> <p><a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/09/10/map-shows-where-the-bobcat-fire-is-burning-in-the-san-gabriel-mountains/">MAP: Where the Bobcat fire is burning in the San Gabriel Mountains</a></p> <p>&#8220;Yesterday, firefighters were successful in keeping the fire from impacting Mt.

People were seen loading valuables into their cars as smoke rose from the foothills in the distance. They were advised to use Santa Anita Avenue to leave the area.</p> <p>About 305 homes were in the evacuation zone, Angeles National Forest spokesman Andrew Mitchell said. Most were in Arcadia, and 32 were in Sierra Madre, officials said.</p> <p>A Red Cross evacuation center was established at Santa Anita Race Track,  at 285 W. Huntington Drive. Residents were advised to enter through Gate 5. More information about the center was available at 1-800-RED-CROSS (733-2767).</p> <p>Evacuation warnings were in effect for Monrovia, Bradbury, Altadena, Duarte, Pasadena and the remainder of Sierra Madre. An evacuation order was also issued for Camp Williams.</p> <p>The fire had burned 33,312 acres in the Angeles National Forest and was 6% contained as of Sunday evening. It was fueled by abnormally dry vegetation, and burned downhill overnight Saturday toward Monrovia. It scorched the Millard campground north of Muir Heights by Sunday, and reached a portion of the Chantry Flat picninc area near the Arcadia Wilderness Park, just a few miles from houses, by 6 p.m. However, there were no reports of damaged homes at that time.</p> <p>The fire was most active near Big Santa Anita Canyon, Mitchell said. Ground and air crews planned to prioritize firefighting efforts there, at &#8220;the south bend of the fire in Monrovia and in the canyons of Sierra Madre to keep this fire above all these structures,&#8221; said Jerry McGowan, commander of the multi-agency team managing the disaster.</p> <p>Teams were performing controlled burns within a half mile of some homes in order to clear out dry brush and potential fuels, Mitchell said. Dozers and hand crews have dug physical barriers around populated areas.</p> <p>Meanwhile, Duarte resident Olivier Fourtouilo visited several homes in an evacuated portion of Arcadia on Sunday and used a garden hose to soak his friends&#8217; home.</p> <p>&#8220;My buddy&#8217;s in Norway so I thought Id&#8217;d come hose down the property,&#8221; Fourtouilo said.</p> <p>Deer and other wildlife fleeing burning forestland were seen wandering evacuated neighborhoods in Arcadia. At least one bear was seen rummaging through a resident&#8217;s trash bin.</p> <p>The fire also spread north, deeper into the forest toward the Buckhorn Area, McGowan said. Teams at that end of the blaze were working to keep flames south of Highway 2 and west of Highway 39.</p> <p>Highway 2 was closed from Upper Big Tujunga Canyon Road to Big Pines. Highway 39 was blocked at Old San Gabriel Canyon Road and Glendora Ridge Road. Glendora Mountain Road and Mount Wilson Road were also shut down.</p> <p>The fire also prompted a smoke advisory that remained in effect Sunday in most of Los Angeles County and parts of Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. It was extended through Monday, and recommends that people in smoke impacted areas stay indoors and avoid physical activity.</p> <p>Smoke relief centers were open during the day Sunday in parts of Los Angeles while some COVID-19 testing sites in the region temporarily shut down because of air quality problems.</p> <p>Officials with the Los Angeles Zoo said Saturday that the zoo would be closed Sunday and Monday due to the unhealthy air.</p> <p>&#8220;The Zoo hopes to reopen on Tuesday, Sept. 15, but we will continue to monitor air quality advisories issued by the South Coast Air Quality Management District and adhere to air quality safety guidance for safely reopening,&#8221; officials said.</p> <p>They added that staff was closely monitoring the animals who reside in outdoor habitats, but based on past fire events in the Los Angeles area, they did not anticipate any air quality issues to affect the animals.</p> <p>The fire erupted on Sept. 6 near the Cogswell Dam and West Fork Day Use area. Full containment was not estimated until Oct. 15, according to the Forest Service.</p> <p>It did not dramatically expand to the west or east on Sunday, McGowan said. Those areas have been scorched in previous fires over the years, leaving less fuel to burn. These include the Station fire in 2009, the Fish fire and Reservoir fire in 2016 and the first Ranch fire in 2019. Forest land further east, north of Azusa, was scorched earlier this year by the <a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/07/31/dam-fire-above-azusa-40-percent-contained/">Dam fire</a> in July and the second <a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/08/13/brush-fire-leads-to-evacuations-in-azusa/">Ranch fire</a> in August.</p> <p><em>OnScene.TV contributed to this story.</em></p> <aside class="related left"><h2 class="widget-title" data-curated-ids="" data-relation-type="automatic-primary-tag">Related Articles</h2><ul><li> <a class="article-title" href="https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/19/bobcat-fire-grows-to-91000-acres-as-buildings-burn/" title="Bobcat fire grows to 93,000 acres as buildings burn, evacuation orders expand"> <span class="dfm-title"> Bobcat fire grows to 93,000 acres as buildings burn, evacuation orders expand </span> </a> </li><li> <a class="article-title" href="https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/18/bobcat-fire-swells-to-more-than-60000-acres-firefighters-focus-on-northern-edge/" title="Winds pushing Bobcat fire cause &#8216;chaotic&#8217; scene; more evacuations ordered"> <span class="dfm-title"> Winds pushing Bobcat fire cause &#8216;chaotic&#8217; scene; more evacuations ordered </span> </a> </li><li> <a class="article-title" href="https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/17/bobcat-fire-crosses-highway-2-prompting-evacuation-warnings-to-the-north/" title="Bobcat fire forces evacuations in parts of Antelope Valley"> <span class="dfm-title"> Bobcat fire forces evacuations in parts of Antelope Valley </span> </a> </li><li> <a class="article-title" href="https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/16/fire-crews-cant-say-if-some-landmark-sites-have-survived-bobcat-fire-heres-what-they-know-so-far/" title="Fire crews can&#8217;t say if some landmark sites have survived Bobcat fire; here&#8217;s what they know so far"> <span class="dfm-title"> Fire crews can&#8217;t say if some landmark sites have survived Bobcat fire; here&#8217;s what they know so far </span> </a> </li><li> <a class="article-title" href="https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/16/bobcat-fire-firefighters-continue-protecting-mt-wilson-observatory/" title="Bobcat fire: New evacuation warning issued for Antelope Valley areas &#8212; danger not over for Mount Wil Bobcat fire still burning out of control in San Gabriel Mountains, nearly 24,000 acres burned with 6% containment https://www.dailybreeze.com/2020/09/10/bobcat-fire-still-burning-out-of-control-in-san-gabriel-mountains-nearly-24000-acres-burned-with-0-containment/ Arcadia – Daily Breeze urn:uuid:c6c833bb-12e9-84f5-ef54-2d1a4a343bc4 Fri, 11 Sep 2020 10:02:13 +0000 The Bobcat was most active near the Cogswell Reservoir, a fishing and camping spot about seven and a half miles west of Highway 39. <p>The Bobcat fire <a href="https://www.sgvtribune.com/2020/09/09/bobcat-fire-more-san-gabriel-mountains-foothill-communities-under-evacuation-warnings/">burning in the Angeles National Forest</a> north of Monrovia was still spreading out of control on Thursday, Sept. 10, as firefighters contended with powerful winds.</p> <p>The fire has burned 23,890 acres of pristine forest lands, Calfire officials said.

Gavin Newsom to get involved after a another racehorse died at Santa Anita Park, just days after the racetrack reopened from a nearly month-long hiatus following a spate of horse deaths.</p> <p>Arms Runner, a 5-year-old horse who won his last race at the park on Jan. 27, was in the lead when he fell on a portion of track that goes downhill and transitions from grass to dirt during Sunday’s Grade 3 San Simeon Stakes. His fall caused another horse, La Sardane, which quickly regained her feet and went back to running.</p> <p>However, Arms Runner suffered a severe and ultimately fatal injury to his right front leg. <a href="http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/03/31/23rd-horse-has-to-be-euthanized-at-santa-anita-park-after-being-injured/">He was euthanized</a>, and his death is the 23rd at the racetrack since December.</p> <p>“It’s gut wrenching,” said Tim Ritvo of the Stronach Group, which owns Santa Anita Park. “We’ll continue to review, look at all the medical records of the horse, and review all the data that we can and continue to investigate the causes of this.”</p> <p>Everything from the condition of the main racing track to medication to the use of whips has been under scrutiny at the racetrack since horses started dying at Santa Anita Park in late December. Racing has been suspended twice, and the second hiatus <a href="http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/03/29/horse-racing-resumes-santa-anita-park/">just ended Friday after nearly a month</a>.</p> <p>There has been a variety of factors in each of the deadly falls, and track officials haven&#8217;t been able to pinpoint one specific problem.</p> <p>&#8220;There&#8217;s been six on the grass, there&#8217;s been seven on the dirt during racing and the rest of them were on the training, at all different areas, all different places, different legs, right, in front, so we can&#8217;t find any one common denominator,&#8221; Ritvo said.</p> <p>The California Board of Horse Racing had also met just last week to consider new rules for the safety of the horses. One rule that went into immediate effect was a reduction in a medication called Lasix, a diuretic that helps prevent horses from hemorrhaging.</p> <p>People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals issued a statement following the horse death:</p> <blockquote><p>&#8220;This sickening video of Arms Runner in the last minutes of his life shows exactly why PETA is calling on Gov. Gavin Newsom to form an independent panel to investigate training and veterinary practices in California. While the implementation of new rules at Santa Anita racetrack last week represented the first progress in racing reform in decades, it was nowhere near enough to save these horses&#8217; lives. The California Horse Racing Board needs to pass emergency rules right now banning <em>all</em> drugs and banishing all trainers with medication violations from California tracks. Anything short of this is inadequate.&#8221;</p></blockquote> <p>The next race at Santa Anita Park is scheduled for Thursday, and track officials say it will continue as planned.</p> Racing Returns To Santa Anita Park, As Officials Mull New Rules After Deaths Of 22 Horses https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/03/29/horse-racing-resumes-santa-anita-park/ Arcadia – CBS Los Angeles urn:uuid:a98a8e3e-1399-bc27-f134-a620a4221d14 Fri, 29 Mar 2019 20:11:42 +0000 Racing resumed at Santa Anita Park Friday, even as officials are still looking for what caused the death of 22 horses and how to prevent any future deaths. <div class="featured-video"><div id="p35"></div><script>cbsoptanon.onScriptsReady(function(cmp){cmp.ot.targetingAllowed(function(a){if(a) AnvatoPlayer("p35").init({"mcp":"cbs","width":"100%","height":"100%","video":"4056166","autoplay":false,"titleVisible":false,"accessKey":"5VD6Eyd6djewbCmNwBFnsJj17YAvGRwl","accessControl":{"preview":false},"pInstance":"p35","plugins":{"heartbeat":{"account":"cbslocal-global-unified","publisherId":"cbslocal","jobId":"sc_va","marketingCloudId":"823BA0335567497F7F000101@AdobeOrg","trackingServer":"cbsdigitalmedia.hb.omtrdc.net","customTrackingServer":"cbsdigitalmedia.d1.sc.omtrdc.net","chapterTracking":false,"version":"1.5"},"comscore":{"clientId":"3000023","c3":"LosAngeles.cbslocal.com"},"dfp":{"clientSide":{"adTagUrl":"http:\/\/pubads.g.doubleclick.net\/gampad\/ads?sz=2x2&iu=\/4128\/CBS.LA&ciu_szs&impl=s&gdfp_req=1&env=vp&output=xml_vast2&unviewed_position_start=1&url=[referrer_url]&description_url=[description_url]&correlator=[timestamp]","keyValues":{"siteSection":"video-default"}}},"moat":{"clientSide":{"partnerCode":"cbslocalanvatovideo181732609431"}}},"token":"default","expectPreroll":true,"expectPrerollTimeout":5});});});</script></div><p><strong>ARCADIA (CBSLA)</strong> — Racing resumed at Santa Anita Park Friday, even as officials are still looking for what caused the death of 22 horses and how to prevent any future deaths.</p> <p>Protesters were on hand just as the first race got underway at 1 p.m., one day after the California Board of Horse Racing met to consider new rules for the safety of the horses.</p> <p>The <a href="http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/03/14/22nd-horse-death-santa-anita-racetrack/">deaths of 22 horses</a> since the day after Christmas have prompted two halts to racing at the track and <a href="http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/03/03/stop-this-spiral-of-deaths-peta-calls-on-santa-anita-race-track-to-close-after-20th-horse-dies/">plenty of criticism from animal activists including PETA</a>.

(CBS2)</p></div> <p>Bernstein, meanwhile, defended Santa Anita Thursday.</p> <p>&#8220;The track&#8217;s excellent, I don&#8217;t have any problem with it, didn&#8217;t have any problem when they raced on it,&#8221; Bernstein told CBS2. &#8220;We were just careful when the weather was really bad, we jogged on the training track. We didn&#8217;t go out on the main track because it was closed. No, the track was fine.&#8221;</p> <p>Prior to Thursday&#8217;s announcement, animal rights group PETA held a silent protest outside the Los Angeles County district attorney&#8217;s office in downtown L.A. Thursday asking for a criminal investigation.</p> <p>The park’s former track superintendent, Dennis Moore, and Dr. Mick Peterson, director of the University of Kentucky’s Agricultural Equine Programs, <a href="https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/03/07/experts-look-for-answers-santa-anita-closed/">have been jointly examining and monitoring</a> the tracks for the past week. They are looking at whether the heavy rainfall which has fallen across the region over the past few months has factored into the death toll. A Santa Clarita spokesperson told CBS2 that all the inspections determined the tracks to be in good condition.</p> <p>Racing was also briefly suspended last month. <a href="https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2019/02/26/horse-death-toll-at-santa-anita-race-track-rises-to-19/">Following the 19th horse death,</a> Santa Anita closed the main track for several days to have Peterson do an evaluation. The main track was closed to live racing from Feb. 25 through Feb. 28, but reopened to live racing on March 1. Since then, three more horses have died.</p> <p>According to the Times, ten of the deaths have occurred during workouts on the main dirt track, seven have occurred during racing on the main dirt track, and five have occurred on the turf track. None of the deaths have occurred on the training track.</p> <p><em>(© Copyright 2019 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved. City News Service contributed to this report.)</em></p>
