MONROVIA (CBSLA) – Exhausted firefighters Wednesday morning continued to work tirelessly to protect the Mount Wilson Observatory from the out-of-control Bobcat Fire, along with several communities in the San Gabriel foothills which remain under threat.

The Bobcat Fire grew to 44,393 acres Wednesday morning as remained only 3% contained. However, fire officials said there
“We had a good night last night and fire behavior moderated at the south end of the fire,” the U.S. Forest Service tweeted just before 7 a.m.
The flames Tuesday got within 500 feet of the Observatory, but crews were able to keep it from damaging the iconic structure or the numerous radio and television communication towers stationed on the mountain valued at tens of millions of dollars. L.A. County Fire Department helicopters conducted water drops from the Observatory’s parking lot.
Meanwhile, the South Coast Air Quality Management District has extended a smoke advisory into Wednesday for all of L.A. County. Thick smoke and ash hangs over the foothill neighborhoods just south of the Angeles National Forest.
The Bobcat Fire broke out a little after noon on Sept. 6 amid triple-digit temperatures near the Cogswell Dam and the West Fork Day Use area. The fire is churning through thick vegetation and dry brush in steep terrain, some of which has not burned in more 60 years.
The cause is under investigation.
An evacuation order remains in place for about 300 homes in Arcadia and Sierra Madre north of Elkins Avenue and east of Santa Anita Avenue.
Evacuation warnings are in place for Monrovia, Bradbury, Sierra Madre, Altadena, Duarte and Pasadena.

Rebel Wilson Rocks Designer Mini Dress On A Yacht Does Arm Workout With Huge Bottle Of Vodka
Rebel demonstrated the 'Monaco routine.'
Rebel Wilson took to Instagram on Sunday to demonstrate her hilarious new exercise routine. She was dressed to impress, but the fluids she had easy access to weren’t the best choice for staying hydrated.
The 40-year-old Australian actress has been enjoying a getaway in Monaco, and she’s been using social media to document her adventures. She also keeps wowing her followers with photos of the designer looks that she’s worn while attending events and exploring the tiny country.
In her latest update, Rebel rocked a bright red wool mini dress that showed off her incredible figure. The Gucci piece had a crisp, classic look with a slightly flared skirt and fitted waist. Contrasting cream trim created clean lines around the hemline, waist, V-shaped neckline, sleeves, and front pockets. The left pocket featured an interlocking G monogram patch that identified the garment’s designer. A row of three gold buttons also decorated the front of the dress.
Rebel’s swanky and sophisticated apparel helped her fit into her surroundings. Her video was filmed on luxury boat that she identified as the Mrs. L yacht. The Bruno Mars song “Finesse” was playing in the background, and Rebel was holding a massive 4.5 liter bottle of Grey Goose vodka. However, while it initially looked like she was ready to party, the Bridemaids star was actually using the heavy bottle to get an upper body workout.
“I call this the Monaco routine,” Rebel said, addressing the camera.View this post on Instagram

Rebel began by working her biceps. She used the vodka as a weight to perform a set of 10 curls. She then switched to doing an overhead press, slightly bending her knees as she thrust the vodka up in the air. Her final arm exercise was aimed at “the underneath of the upper arms.” She brought the heavy glass container down behind her head to do a short set of overhead triceps extensions.
When she was done with her upper body work, Rebel slung the bottle over one shoulder and said that she was about to do a little cardio by running up and down the stairs that led to the yacht’s lower deck. She jogged over to the stairs, but she stopped when she reached them.
“I’m not going to run up and down the stairs right now, but you guys get the picture,” Rebel said.
Her Instagram followers were huge fans of her new fitness plan and her floating gym, which had a breathtaking view of sparkling sapphire water and the Monaco shoreline.
“Finally a workout routine I understand,” wrote her Pitch Perfect costar Brittany Snow in the comments section.
“I’m so jealous of everything going on in this video,” confessed Ruby Rose, who appeared alongside Rebel in Pitch Perfect 3.
“If gyms are like this… I’m there 24/7,” read a message from a fan.
“We need more trainers like you!!” said another admirer.
