Still seem to be raging, although it appears from the CNN coverage that they are calming down. Some stats to date on the carnage:
Fire crews found two bodies Thursday inside a home in Poway, California, one of the San Diego communities hit hardest by this week’s fierce wildfires, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.
If the deaths are confirmed to be from the Witch fire, the largest to hit Southern California this week, they would be the third in the 23 fires that have charred more than 460,00 acres. More than 1,400 homes have been destroyed.
One person was killed in the Harris fire in southern San Diego County earlier this week.
Seven other deaths are labeled as fire-related: Three people died during evacuations, and four others died after being evacuated. Seventy-eight people, including at least 36 firefighters, have been injured.
Winds that fanned the wildfires calmed to single-digit speeds Thursday, while the lifting of evacuation orders allowed thousands of Californians to return to check on their homes.
Hopefully, Glenn Beck is running the numbers and we will know shortly how many of those 1,400 homes deserved to burn.
