Five things to know this Tuesday morning: 

1.) Downey has dispatched a fire engine and at least four firefighters to the Butte Fire in Northern California. 

The firefighters arrived at 3 a.m. Saturday and are assigned to 24-hour operational periods. 


2.) Downey resident Karyn Ehrenfeldt claims Downey is being selective in its water rationing, noting that the grass at Wilderness Park is greener than at Furman. 

"I ask our city representatives to cease being selective when it comes to water rationing. What is right for Wilderness Park, the country club and the Barbara Riley Center must also be right for Furman Park."

4.) In conjunction with an anticipated renovation project, AMC Theatre in Norwalk is seeking permission to begin selling beer and wine to moviegoers.
