Fire contained out west; starting east

UPDATED: Given recent fire events in Claremont lately, it was easy to assume smoke seen Monday night from a brush fire in the mountains west was close to the city. Turns out, the now 250 plus acre blaze burned north of Azusa, starting at 5:52 p.m. As darkness approached, the fire continued and voluntary evacuations were recommended for some homes. By Tuesday afternoon, 70 percent of this fire had been contained. Increased breezes this afternoon have concerned fire officials, as a fire has started in the Lytle Creek area in San Bernardino County. More as news develops. COURIER photo/Peter Weinberger
