The largest fire in Los Angeles County history is now nearly 90 percent contained. County Fire expects to have it out completely by the weekend. While there's still a danger of flare ups, efforts are now turning to the recovery effort. How long will it take for the trees and vegetation of the Angeles Forest to regenerate? What will the process look like? What's the danger of mudslides come the rainy season? And what, if any, steps should forest services take in this process?
