SANTA CLARITA ( — The destructive Sand Fire continued to burn across more than 37,000 acres Tuesday in Santa Clarita.

At this time, the blaze remains at 25-percent containment, firefighters said.

The following street closures remain in effect:

— Soledad Canyon Road east of the 14 Freeway and Bootlegger Canyon

— Agua Dulce Canyon, Ward and Placerita Canyon roads east of the 14 Freeway

— Little Tujunga Canyon Road at Wildlife Way Station

Most of the roughly 20,000 evacuees forced out by the fire have been cleared to go home.

A week of triple digit temperatures awaited the army of some 3,000 firefighters battling flames in rugged hills and canyons.
