The main highway linking Southern California to Las Vegas reopened Thursday as firefighters gained ground on a fast-moving wildfire that raged for a third day in mountains east of Los Angeles.Much of the fire was burning across unpopulated swaths of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains about 60 miles (95 km) east of Los Angeles, but Wrightwood and several adjacent communities were being threatened.The Blue Cut fire is one of nearly 30 major blazes reported to have scorched at least 530 sq miles (1,370 sq km) in eight Western states this week, in the midst of a wildfire season stoked by prolonged drought and unusually hot weather, according to the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, Idaho.
