L.A. Zoo reopens after wildfire threat

July 28, 2008 | 11:33 am

The L.A. Zoo reopened this morning after firefighters knocked down a 25-acre blaze that briefly threatened the zoo and one of its California Condor breeding facilities, the Times's Stuart Pfeifer reports.

After the blaze broke out near the zoo Sunday afternoon, officials evacuated 4,000 visitors and relocated 18 California Condors and two king vultures from a breeding facility that was close to the fire.
