Crews battling a smoky wildfire in the foothills east of Los Angeles are bracing for the return of gusty winds that initially pushed the fire toward more than 1,600 homes.
Hot Santa Ana winds are expected to return today along with 100-degree temperatures.
The U.S. Forest Service says the thousand-acre wildfire did not grow overnight and is now 10 percent contained. Crews are building containment lines around the blaze today.
Officials have ordered nine schools near the blaze above Rancho Cucamonga to remain closed. While residents have been allowed to return to their homes, they've been told to be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice.
