Anaheim Hills Brush Fire Now 15 Percent Contained

A brush fire that broke out yesterday afternoon in Anaheim Hills is now reported as being 15 percent contained, according to CBS2. Gusty Santa Ana winds helped bush the blaze through "60 acres of Southern California hills before firefighters reduced it Wednesday to a smoldering -- but still dangerous -- black scar." While no homes are threatened and no evacuations ordered, the Orange County Fire Authority still caution that the 50 mph winds expected later today could resurrect the flames. Full containment should happen on Thanksgiving Day, when throughout the Southland we can expect unseasonably warm temps and more hot winds.
