Wild Fires Cause Thousands of People Near Los Angeles, California to Flee


October 3, 2005 (HDW) Los Angeles, California - The fast growing Topanga wildfires that forced thousands of residents from their homes northwest of Los Angeles in late September 2005 had come under much greater control by early October. According to estimates from the National Interagency Fire Center on Monday morning, October 3, the 24,175-acre Topanga fire was about 85 percent contained, but was nevertheless still a threat to residences.
