>> Fierce, erratic winds that have fueled the deadly wildfires raging in California, are expected to ease on Wednesday. Officials are hoping calmer conditions will allow more evacuees to return to their homes. The Carr fire, which has killed six people, including two firefighters, was propelled by gale force winds that whipped the blaze into a flaming cyclone.
Four people are still missing in the fire zone. The blaze, now ranked as the sixth most destructive wildfire in California history, has destroyed some 965 dwellings and more than 400 other buildings. As many as 37,000 people remain displaced. California is dealing with the volatile wildfire season as a mix of scorching heat, erratic winds, and dry conditions are fueling flames.
