SOUTHLAND : Antelope Valley Fire 80% Contained

June 29, 1989| From Times wire services

A brush fire that threatened two small Antelope Valley communities and charred more than 2,000 acres of mostly rugged terrain was 80% contained this morning, the Los Angeles County Fire Department reported.

Though one home and two other structures were burned Wednesday when the fire skirted between Elizabeth Lake and Green Valley, forcing the temporary evacuation of 1,000 people, the fire was moving northwesterly into mountainous areas today and no communities or structures were threatened, authorities said.
