(AP) Ventura County firefighters have fully contained the remnants of a wildfire that burned two homes and threatened more than 100 others in Fillmore. County fire spokesman Mike Lindbery says the 148-acre fire was 100 percent surrounded by noon Tuesday. Full control is expected Wednesday. The fire broke out Monday afternoon in a mobile home and was rapidly spread by powerful winds, forcing temporary evacuations in the northern part of that city. Decreasing winds overnight allowed firefighters to make progress. No injuries were reported. The cause remains under investigation.
To celebrate the 15th birthday of its Chandra X-ray Observatory, NASA has published four previously unreleased images of supernova remnants.
