If you were planning on heading out to the town of Wrightwood or the Mountain High resort soon, you no longer have to worry about the Sheep Fire.  The fire is currently at 85 percent containment and is expected to be fully extinguished on Saturday.  The number of firefighters battling the blaze earlier in the week were 1,900, but those ranks were reduced to 1,446 on Wednesday.  The Sheep Fire has burned over 7,128 acres and five homes since it started on Saturday west of I-15 at the southern end of the Cajon Pass.
