Firefighters continue to make progress on the Woolsey Fire, increasing their containment overnight as the fire burned pockets of brush within the fire perimeter.

The blaze is now one of the largest on record to burn in Los Angeles County.

The wildfire is about 47 percent contained and burned several hundred more acres as firefighters entered their seventh day contending with the blaze.

Last night, Malibu residents gathered last night at Santa Monica High School to get the latest on the Woolsey Fire and plans for repopulation.
