RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California wildfire that forced the evacuation of about 1,600 foothill homes is now only smoldering and crews expect to make significant progress as winds ease.

No homes have burned in the area east of Los Angeles, and there are no mandatory evacuations.
The blaze began Wednesday morning and quickly surged through dry grass and chaparral."
