Wildfires Rage in California

At least eight large wildfires are raging in California. The largest is in Los Angeles, where a massive blaze in the Angeles National Forest, north of the city, is threatening suburban communities. That fire has scorched more than 34,000 hectares and destroyed at least 21 homes. Mike O'Sullivan reports, more than 6,000 homes have been evacuated, several people have been injured and two firefighters have died.
