11 a.m., 10/5/09: Schools in the Snowline School District were closed this morning as firefighters continued their efforts to contain the 7,500-acre Sheep fire in the San Gabriel Mountains. The blaze began Saturday and has forced the evacuation of thousands of residents in the mountaintop community of Wrightwood. Some 2,000 homes remain threatened but firefighters are encouraged by calmer winds.
