it's not the treasure of the sierra madre

it's the wildfire.
firefighters gained ground sunday against an early season wildfire that slowly chewed its way through dense brush near los angeles, forcing more than 1,000 people from homes in the foothills.

about 500 firefighters attacked the 400-acre fire, aided by two helicopters and water-dropping air tankers, said elisa weaver, spokeswoman for the city of sierra madre. residents evacuated at least 550 homes saturday night and sunday, but none had burned. - ap

pursuant of a formal mutual aid request, the los angeles fire department has assigned two helicopters to assist the sierra madre fire department and allied agencies in their battle against a brush fire in the san gabriel mountains near arcadia and sierra madre, california 20 miles northeast of our city. - lafd blog
