Glendale Fire Chief Harold Scoggins said the “head” of a 75-acre brush fire in the canyons of North Glendale “is pretty much knocked down right now.” Evacuation orders remain in place for hundreds of homes in the Glenoaks and Chevy Chase canyons as fire crews and water-dropping helicopters continue to fight the blaze.
