Fire in L.A.'s Griffith Park mostly out
by UPI

LOS ANGELES - More than 200 firefighters remained in historic Griffith Park in Los Angeles Thursday, checking for flareups.

While most of the flames were out, the fire was not expected to be fully contained until late in the day, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The fire began Tuesday and spread to more than 800 acres, threatening the Los Angeles Zoo, the merry-go-round and other park landmarks, along with an upscale neighborhood nearby. By Thursday, the wind had died down, helping the firefighting effort.

Officials from several city departments also met Thursday to discuss how to plan the park's recovery. Chief Ranger Albert Torres said one possibility is letting vegetation come back naturally.

"The fire is part of the ecology of the area. There are an assortment of native plants that will not propagate unless there is a fire," Torres said.
