Calmer winds help firefighters battling deadly California blaze

Calmer winds help firefighters battling deadly California blazeBy Bob Strong REDDING, Calif.

The Carr Fire has burned in and around Redding, California, a city of 90,000 residents about 160 miles (260 km) north of the state capital Sacramento, since last Monday, reducing more than 800 homes to ash. The 36,000 firefighters, however, remained hampered by a lingering heat wave.
