OC wildfire at 60 acres, 15 percent contained
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- -- Firefighters expect to have a 60-acre fire in Orange County contained sometime Thursday, though gusts could fan the smoldering blaze back to life.
Capt. Greg McKeown of the Orange County Fire Authority says 50-mph gusts are expected Wednesday afternoon and could affect their containment efforts.
The blaze erupted Tuesday night and is burning brushy hills in an unincorporated area near Anaheim. It's 15 percent contained and no homes are immediately threatened.
About 200 firefighters and a helicopter are at the scene.
