Firefighters make progress in California but weather not promising


Firefighters make progress in California but weather not promisingThousands of firefighters, backed by US troops and crews from as far away as Australia and New Zealand, made progress Wednesday in their battle with California's biggest wildfire on record -- but the weather forecast for the rest of the week is not promising, officials said. The wildfires have left at least nine people dead, including four firefighters, and forced tens of thousands of residents to abandon their homes. "It's scary, it's nerve-wracking," said Jay Michael, who was resting in a van in a parking lot in Clearlake Oaks with Gretchen Fritsch after they fled their home.
