Officials announced this evening that the Sheep Fire has been 75 percent contained, a major improvement from this morning when it was only listed at 32 percent containment. The size of the blaze is still listed at 7,128 acres.

Earlier today, mandatory evacuation orders for the Wrightwood area were lifted. And after two days of closures, Snowline School District schools will reopen.
