Fire burning near JPL not immediately threatening structures
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- Rapper M-Bone of the Cali Swag District has been killed in a drive-by shooting in Inglewood, according to police.
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow is on his way to a hospital in San Francisco Monday.
A fire that broke out Monday afternoon near the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada-Flintrige has charred about an acre of brush but was burning away from the research institute, a fire official said.
At least three water-tanker helicopters were making drops on the fire, which broke out around 12:30 p.m. and was burning uphill near the 4800 block of Oak Grove Drive, said L.A. County Fire Department spokesman Don Kunatomi.
More than 100 firefighters were dispatched to the blaze, which was not immediately threatening structures, official said.
No evacuations have been ordered and officials said they were making rapid progress knocking down the fire, in part because of cooler-than-normal conditions.
