California Wildfire is 70% contained

From USA Today

Firefighters aided by dying winds appeared to be winning the battle Sunday against a 63-square-mile wildfire that killed four of their own and destroyed more than 30 homes.

The 40,450-acre blaze, which authorities say was set by an arsonist, was 70% contained four days after blowtorch gusts overran a U.S. Forest Service crew. Four members were killed and a fifth was left clinging to life with burns over most of his body.
