Monday morning report, June 6

Five things to know this Monday morning: 

1.) The Downey Greek Festival went on without a hitch this weekend, with what appeared to be a record number of visitors despite the heat.

There was at least one complaint about the noise. 


2.) Downey firefighters were dispatched to the "Old" fire in Calabasas this weekend. As of yesterday afternoon, the fire was 80 percent contained. 

Downey is part of the Area E strike team, which includes engine companies from Compton, Downey, Santa Fe Springs, Vernon and West Covina. The team is lead by battalion chiefs from Compton and Santa Fe Springs.
