Firefighters Save Catalina Island Town

More than 4,200 acres have burned on Catalina Island, located off the coast of southern California.

Fire officials say more than a third of the fire has been contained, and they hope to have it under control by early next week.

The fire nearly burned down the island's main town, Avalon, but a brave crew of firefighters stood their ground and saved the city.
