Lockheed Fire: Monday update

CDF now reports 65% containment. The damage has now passed the 7,000 acre mark and the costs have risen to just under $10m. A fifth injury has been reported.

The good news is that the evacuation order for Bonny Doon has been temporarily lifted and residents are being allowed to return, though it remains in place for Swanton.
