The tally of damage from the Triangle Complex Fire has increased from 120 lost structures reported this morning to 259 destroyed structures in areas including Corona, Yorba Linda and Anaheim Hills, according to KCAL9 on-air news. The blaze, that hit parts of Orange, Riverside San Bernadino and LA counties, is still 40% contained with 29,000 acres burned. Officials are saying that it was possibly caused by a spark from a passing by car.

The Sayre Fire which began in Sylmar and traveled over the San Gabriel Mountains into the Santa Clarita Valley is also 40% contained after it swept through 10,00 acres. 615 structures were damaged including 480 homes at the Oakridge Mobile Home Park in Sylmar where 120 homes were spared. No cause has been determined, but the scene is being treated as a crime scene. Schwarzenegger has called for a review of mobile home building standards.
