IRWINDALE, Calif. (AP) — The heat may finally be going out of a confrontation between a chili-sauce maker and a Los Angeles suburb.

Irwindale Mayor Mark Breceda tells the Pasadena Star-News (http://bit.ly/1nsRI2h) that he'll ask the City Council to drop its public-nuisance order and lawsuit against Huy Fong Foods.

The company makes the popular Sriracha (suhr-AH'-chuh) hot sauce.

The city has been squabbling with the company for months after residents complained that spicy odors burned their throats and eyes.

But on Tuesday morning, city officials held a closed-door meeting with company CEO David Tran and representatives of Gov. Jerry Brown's Business and Economic Development Office.

Tran says he installed stronger filters at the plant, and he's confident they will block fumes when the chili-grinding season begins in August.
