CA: Indians fire update

The Indians fire on the Los Padres National Forest in California this afternoon, Tuesday, destroyed more structures, including 1 residence, 3 second homes, 10 outbuildings and a motorhome. Several other structures in the area were saved by some of the 2,200 firefighters working on the incident which started from a campfire on June 8 and is now 35,339 acres. The containment percentage today decreased from 46% to 35% due to extreme fire behavior on the southeast side.
