California wildfires burn homes, threaten more

JULIAN, Calif. (AP) - Firefighters working to corral a destructive wildfire churning through rural Northern California made sizable gains overnight.

Crews won 55 percent containment of the Napa County blaze, up from 30 percent, thanks to favorable weather conditions that allowed crews to burn away fuel on the fire's Lake County flank.

The size of the fire remains at more than 6 square miles. The fire has burned two homes and seven outbuildings.

It's burning to the north, away from the county's famed vineyards.

A second blaze, in San Diego County, has destroyed two homes and threatens hundreds more.
