Sand Fire Update #4: Slightly lower temperatures and higher humidity predicted for today is expected to assist firefighters in their efforts to contain the Sand Wildfire. With over 22,000 acres of dry brush land already scorched, firefighters are making heroic efforts to protect the lives and property of area residents. While no immediate threat has been identified today for Sylmar residents, the community is urged to stay tuned to radio and TV for updated fire information as it becomes available. Residents are reminded that a Smoke Advisory is still in effect for affected areas. The South Coast Air Quality Management District advises residents to avoid vigorous outdoor activity, and children, older adults, and those with respiratory or heart disease should remain indoors. Residents also are being asked to keep their windows and doors closed or seek alternative shelter.
