As the Sayre Fire continues to burn, the latest figures on the devastating blaze show that it has burned close to 9,500 acres, destroyed 9 single family homes, 500 mobile homes, 10 commercial buildings, and is at 30% containment. The fire is now burning towards the Angeles National Forest, which means it poses less of a threat to residential areas. Winds remain strong in the San Fernando Valley; there is a Red Flag warning in effect until 4 p.m. today.
