Huge fire burns to edge of 3 small Calif. towns
MANTON, Calif. — Aided by a shift in wind direction, firefighters made a stand against a huge lightning-sparked wildfire burning on the edge of three small Northern California towns.
The blaze, which grew to more than 25 square miles late Monday continued to threaten thousands of homes, as fearful residents sought safety miles away at an emergency shelter.
"All we can do is pray," evacuee Jerry Nottingham told reporters.
