ARCADIA, Calif. - Firefighters have managed to partially corral a wildfire near Los Angeles that forced the evacuation of an historic observatory.

Mount Wilson Observatory near the mountain peak was evacuated earlier in the day. The 30-acre blaze also threatened TV broadcast and other communications towers northeast of Los Angeles.
No homes are in immediate danger.
