The Los Angeles County Fire Department has lifted the mandatory evacuation for the affected areas of the Country Estates and Diamond Bar. "The threat of fire has decreased and firefighters continue to make good progress on containment," a statement from the department read. "Progress has been made along the west side of the 57 Freeway and along the base of the Boy Scout Reservation. Firefighter continues to work on the containment within the fire line."

One of rapper Snoop Dogg's homes in Country Estates was in the mandatory evacuation area. He was not home at the time, but his family was. "My family had to be evacuated. It's right in the area of where I live in, so I'm just praying for everybody, hopefully rain, and that firefighters get it done trying to bring an end," he told E! News.
