Saddleridge Fire 95 Percent Contained

The Saddleridge Fire on the northern edge of the San Fernando Valley is 95 percent contained, according to an update from the Los Angeles Fire Department on Tuesday morning. So far, the fire has burned 8,800 acres, destroyed 17 structures and damaged 88 others. More than 300 personnel from multiple government agencies are assigned to the fire. “Tactical patrols will remain in place to monitor the area as low humidity and gusty northerly winds remain a concern,” the LAFD website said. “The public is reminded to please drive cautiously and yield to emergency personnel who are still working in and around the burn area.” The cause of the Saddleridge Fire remains under investigation.
