Wildfires menace southern California

    Wildfires are raging in southern California, keeping thousands of residents away from their homes.

    Firefighters have had to tackle at least nine different blazes during the past three days as the wind and heat create tornadoes of fire.

    A state of emergency has now been declared, a development that should guarantee more resources to deal with the crisis.
