(SOUNDBITE) (English) CHRIS GAULDING, U.S. FOREST SERVICE, SAYING: "The last 24 hours have been great for the crews on the ground. We've been able to make significant progress along the fire's edge. Gain that containment. I'm sure you'll see those numbers continue to grow up as the days go on. Yeah, it's just an unbelievable effort by the guys that are doing the work on the ground." Some 5600 residents have been evacuated from the towns of Idyllwild and Fern Valley. Firefighters working on the blaze are hopeful that rain which is forecast will fall in the burn areas, although changing winds are still a concern.
