Cooler weather helping effort to quell California wildland blazes

Cooler weather has aided firefighters in the battle to control wildfires in California -- however CalFire is keeping an eye on the possibility of lighting-spawned blazes in the northern part of the state today.

In Ventura County, southeast of Camarillo, the blaze that has burned 28,000 acres is 80 percent contained. In Riverside County, at Highway 243, the fire that burned 510 acres is completely contained.

In the north state, a Tehama County fire, eight miles northwest of Butte Meadows, is 60 percent contained after burning 6,800 acres. The fire still burns in the Mill Creek and Deer Creek drainage areas.

In Glenn County, two miles south of Elk Creek, a fire that burned 217 acres is completely contained.
