ANAHEIM, Calif. — Southern California firefighters continue to build containment lines around the remnants of a destructive wildfire that erupted amid gusty Santa Ana winds earlier this week.

Authorities say there’s 65 percent containment Friday morning and there was minimal fire behavior overnight.

The fire broke out Monday in the Anaheim Hills and spread over more than 14 square miles.

The latest assessment shows 25 structures were destroyed and 48 were damaged.

Forecasters say fire weather is returning to portions of Southern California.

Red Flag warnings have been issued for the mountains of Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties Friday night through Saturday morning. A fire weather watch has been issued for a wider area of the region.
