Firefighters are getting an assist from rainfall in the battle against a 3,800-acre in the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles.
Remnants of a tropical storm are darkening skies in the region Wednesday and Angeles National Forest spokesman John Wagner says it's been raining very lightly.
The moist air, however, does bring the risk of lightning and more fires.
The fire started Sunday and, before the rains came, was 24 percent contained. The fire has stayed in the mountains and has not moved toward nearby foothill cities.
