Fire Officials Worry As High Winds Menace California

Los Angeles firefighters raced on Tuesday to subdue a wildfire displacing thousands of hillside residents.

Meanwhile, the state’s biggest utility imposed yet another round of precautionary power outages in northern California.

Fierce, dry desert winds are expected to begin howling across much of California again on Tuesday night.

Reuters reports forecasts call for high winds gusting to 70 miles per hour or more.
