With temperatures expected to rise to triple digits today, the Morris Fire north of Azusa has burned through three square miles of the Angeles National Forest and is now 45 percent contained, according to authorities this morning. The fire began Tuesday afternoon and quickly spread into dry brush of San Gabriel Canyon and sending smoke into the Los Angeles basin that may stick around until Sunday.

Some 20 miles to the West, another blaze, the Station Fire, lit up yesterday north of La Canada-Flintridge and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. It has burned about 30 acres and is 20 percent contained.
