Two wildfires in the Angeles National Forest northeast of Los Angeles continue to burn as fire crews face another day of high heat.

U.S. Forest Service Capt. Jim Wilkins said Thursday the Morris Fire in the San Gabriel Mountains above the city of Azusa has grown to nearly 3 square miles. It's 45 percent contained.

Wilkins says water-dropping aircraft and bulldozers will concentrate on the northeastern edge to keep the blaze from surging into a vast track of bone-dry brush and timber.

To the west, a fire north of the foothill community of La Canada Flintridge is burning 30 acres and is 20 percent contained.

In Monterey County, a fire that has spread over more than 3 square miles and burned a mobile home is 30 percent contained.
