From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus have been found at a Fullerton park, prompting health officials Monday to increase spraying in the area while warning residents to take precautions.

Mosquitoes collected in traps at Craig Regional Park on July 19 tested positive for the virus, which this year has infected 16 people in California, said Tawnia Pett, spokeswoman for Orange County Vector Control.
