15An eviction warning took effect Wednesday morning for residents in a southeastern part of the Antelope Valley after the Bobcat Fire expanded to 46,263 acres, with only 3% containment.

Authorities asked residents of Juniper Hills, south of Fort Tejon Road and east of 96th Street, as well as east and south of Valyermo Road and west of Bob’s Gap Road, to pack up and prepare to leave their homes wednesday night.

However, orders were canceled Wednesday for residents north of Elkins Avenue and east of Santa Anita Avenue in Arcadia and parts of Sierra Madre.

Residents were able to return home at 4 p.m.

Bobcat Fire Continues to Grow – Now at 46,263 acres

“Welcome home Arcadia”

The Arcadia Fire Department tweeted Wednesday night. “Continue guards and alerts while Arcadia remains in an evacuation warning state in case fire conditions change.

“Rest easy tonight. Arcadia’s police and fire departments will monitor the area overnight.”

Fire crews worked throughout the day to protect, from approaching flames, the Mt. Wilson Observatory and nearby transmission towers valued at more than $1 billion.

Fires over Tuesday near the observatory were effective in reducing the intensity and spread of flames, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

“The area around Mount Wilson and the southwest edge of the fire remains active where crews continue to protect the infrastructure of the Mt. Wilson Observatory”, firefighters said Wednesday night.

The observatory staff was evicted. Mt. Wilson is not only one of the crown jewels of astronomy, but also houses an infrastructure that transmits cell phone signals and television and radio broadcasts for the Greater Los Angeles area.

At the northern end of the fire, the goal was to try to contain spot fires via Highway 2, after a fire of 500 to 1,000 acres crossed the highway on Tuesday. Tanker trucks were ordered Wednesday morning to help contain the fire in the Cooper Canyon area.

The east side of the fire remained calm.

Total fire containment, which will be achieved through vegetation removal, was not estimated until October 30, according to the U.S. Forest Service. The authorities had previously estimated full containment by 15 October, but revised that date on Sunday.

A closing order for all National Forests in Southern California was extended through Monday.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District extended its smoke warning until Thursday and most of its jurisdiction experienced smoke impacts.

Zoos are affected by poor air quality

The Los Angeles Zoo, which closed on Sunday due to poor air quality and hoped to reopen on Tuesday, announced that it will be closed until Friday.

He plans to open on Saturday and urged people who purchased tickets during the closing period to visit the facility’s website to reschedule.

“Based on past fire events in the area, we don’t anticipate that air quality issues affect our animals”

According to a Twitter post from the zoo.

“However, our animal care and veterinary health staff are closely monitoring animals in outdoor habitats and are preparing to respond as needed.”

The Bobcat fire broke out on September 6 near Cogswell Dam and west Fork daytime use area northeast of Mt. Wilson and within the Angels National Forest. The cause remains under investigation.
