Another day, another fire. This year's fire season in Southern California may have gotten off to a slow start, things are beginning to pick up. Two fires--the Oak and Marshall fires--burned in and near the Angeles National Forest within the last 24 hours. This afternoon, a new one began near Pyramid Lake in the Grapevine. A first, it was reported to be rather small, then more than 100 acres and now over 350 acres according to KNX1070 on air. At least two northbound lanes on the 5 freeway have been closed. Also: A larger fire has burned around 1300 acres at Camp Pendleton.
