Tenaja fire rages in California: "They don't know which way it's going to go"

Flames from the Tenaja fire are burning dangerously close to homes in California. After tearing through 2,000 acres, the fire is only about 10% contained.

Hundreds of homes were threatened when heavy winds kicked up the blaze on Thursday afternoon. "All of a sudden, it just started taking off!" one witness said.

Some 800 firefighters, facing 90 degree temperatures, attacked the fire with bulldozers on the ground and water-dropping helicopters from the air.

"We did have a full strike team of resources deployed," said Fernando Herrera of the Riverside County Fire Department, who added that firefighters also went to homeowners' backyards to help protect their homes.

2. Wednesday night NW CA got hammered with over 19,000 lightning strikes

New fires are rapidly becoming evident.

Here is a link I cannot get to copy with a nice map and text.

Here is a link to the inciweb site for Shasta-Trinity National Forest. Inciweb is a portal to other fire locations as well.
