Evacuation warnings were in effect for seven San Gabriel Valley foothill communities Wednesday morning as the Bobcat Fire in the Angeles National Forest grew to 10,344 acres with no containment.
Fire officials issued evacuation warnings for residents in Duarte, Bradbury, Monrovia, Acadia, Sierra Madre, Pasadena and Altadena, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
"Residents following Ready, Set, Go! should have evacuation plans in place, organize their emergency evacuation supplies, and have essential evacuation personal belongings easily accessible. Vehicles should be fully fueled, facing out in their driveways and ready to go,'' county fire Capt. Ron Haralson said.
Arcadia city officials suggested Tuesday night residents north of Foothill Boulevard and east of Santa Anita Avenue voluntarily evacuate and residents in Sierra Madre north of Grandview Avenue were advised to voluntarily evacuate.
