• Monrovia Fire Update


    MONROVIA (CNS) – A wildfire that blackened about 125 acres in mountains north of Monrovia was about 85 percent contained today.

    The fire started near Hillcrest Boulevard and Madison Avenue shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday and, within 45 minutes, spread to about 10 acres, fire officials said. Winds were light, but the fire nearly doubled in size over the next hour.

    More than 200 homes were evacuated at one point, as firefighters in the air and on the ground worked to put out the fire.

    By 4 p.m. Sunday, the so-called Madison fire was listed as 85 percent contained, and all evacuations had been lifted.

    No structures were damaged, and no injuries were reported.

    Someone using a weed-eater may have started the fire, but fire officials have yet to name a cause.

    City and county fire departments assisted the Monrovia Fire Department, as did Pasadena and other San Gabriel Valley cities that have mutual aid arrangements.
