Firefighters make progress against deadly Los Angeles wildfireThe Los Angeles Fire Department said the fire was 19 percent contained after “aggressive” overnight air operations in support of ground crews, up from 13 percent a day earlier, and mandatory evacuation orders were lifted for several areas, including all neighborhoods south of the 118 Freeway. At least one death has been attributed to the Saddleridge fire, a man who authorities said suffered a heart attack while trying to fight encroaching flames on his property rather than heeding evacuation orders. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries, the LAFD said, and 31 structures have been either damaged or destroyed.
