Fire crews battle fast-moving wildfires
Fire crews were battling two fast-moving wildfires in California that threatened many homes and forced hundreds of evacuations, officials said.
A fire in the Sacramento region had mushroomed to about 4,000 acres by late Saturday, while a blaze that began in the afternoon around Yosemite National Park threatened a small community.
The so-called Sand Fire began Friday in the Sierra Nevada foothills and has since raced through more than 6 square miles of drought-stricken grasslands east of Sacramento. (AP)
