Eaton Canyon Fire Knocked Down

The Los Angeles County Fire Department is reporting that the fire in Eaton Canyon has been knocked down.

You may have seen the numerous helicopters flying over. There was a fire in Eaton Canyon. Here's the update from Carolyn Seitz:

It was contained to approximately 1 acre.

The area will be monitored, likely through the evening.

Search & Rescue crews from Altadena and Sierra Madre are still sweeping the trails to evacuate hikers. Montrose Search & Rescue is on scene and ready to assist.

Traffic controls may be in place to prevent access to the Canyon for the night, and it is being reported by some residents in the President Streets area that some portions of Altadena Drive are blocked to through traffic.

More information will be provided when available.
