Better weather is helping firefighters gain ground on a Southern California wildfire.The Sheep Fire has been burning in San Bernardino County since Saturday. It's now at 7,100 acres and is 32-percent contained.

The National Weather Service predicts the cooler temperatures, higher humidity and light winds will continue through this week. But firefighters know conditions can change in an instant.

"This area has not burned in over 40 years so there are still dry fuels and it could kick back up at anytime if anything changes," said Ryan Beckers with the San Bernardino Fire Department.

Wrightwood remains under a mandatory evacuation order. Three homes have been destroyed.
