Today's cooler temps helped firefighters get the Griffith Park fire under control. After consuming over 800 acres, the fire is 50 75 percent contained and will hopefully be entirely contained within 24 hours, according to LAFD Chief Douglas Barry.

Via the LAFD blog, the following Griffith Park landmarks have been damaged:

# DANTE’S VIEW- DESTROYED BY FIRE
# CAPTAIN’S ROOST- DESTROYED BY FIRE
# BIRD SANCTUARY- DAMAGED 10% BY FIRE
# GRIFFITH PARK NURSERY- 1 CITY VEHICLE LOST, SEVERAL RESTROOMS DESTROYED BY FIRE
# CEDAR GROVE- DAMAGED 20% BY FIRE

At present, this weekend's Keane and Harry Connick, Jr. shows are still slated for the Greek. More info after the jump.
