Fire in the vicinity of LA Zoo largely extinguished, as some animals evacuate - Los Angeles Times

The fire, which smelled clouds of smoke in the air when heavy brushes burned, was seen just before 8 o'clock in the vicinity of firewalls, footpaths and a landfill in a remote part of Griffith Park, a challenge for crews trying to gain access to the area, said Firefighter Peter Sanders from Los Angeles.
