Firefighters have gained control of the Sterling Fire in Lakeside, where 1,300 households were evacuated and residents are projected to be allowed back home around 9 p.m. An eyewitness, Elizabeth Galloway, told ECM she saw a transformer explode, which apparently caused the fire. Galloway sent the photo at the top of this page.
