A raging brush fire in the mountains above Azusa, Calif., continued to burn Tuesday, but the 450 firefighters dispatched to fight it are making progress thanks to low winds.
The blaze started around 6 p.m. Monday in Sierra Madre and quickly burned east toward the Azusa border, KTLA 5 reported
. As of Tuesday morning, the fire had spread to some 200 acres and was 5 percent contained.

U.S. Forest Service spokesman Shaun Rollman told the Los Angeles Times
that Tuesday's low winds and double-digit humidity should give fire crews a chance to overpower the flames.
A voluntary evacuation was briefly issued for 25 homes in the Mountain Cover neighborhood but officials lifted it Tuesday when the Azusa fire shifted, KTLA 5 reported.
No injuries have been reported and an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the blaze.
