That Angeles National Forest wildfire continues to rampage with over 105,000 acres burned today. This killer wildfire has claimed two lives, 35-year-old Arnaldo Quinones and 47-year-old Tedmund Hall. Both Los Angeles County firefighters were fatally injured in a truck accident in the fire zone yesterday.

The temperatures are a bit cooler today, but it’s still a tough fight for fire crews. There are about 2,500 firefighters battling the flames. So far, 21 homes have been destroyed. At this time,  as many as 12,000 homes are still being threatened.
