California Wild Fires

Six large wildfires have scorched 141,000 acres in California this week, said officials with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire. At least 5,700 firefighters are working to contain the flames. The fires have forced 190,000 people out of their homes, some with nothing but their pets and a few mementos. Dry air and strong winds are forecast for the region through Sunday, which may fuel the fires. Gov. Jerry Brown has issued an emergency proclamation for Santa Barbara and San Diego counties.
