- 10/25/07: Calif. Fire Hopes Rise as Santa Ana Winds Begin To Subside. "As
fierce Santa Ana winds finally began to subside, firefighters reached a turning
point Wednesday in their desperate four-day battle against Southern California's
wildfires. Although several large fires remained largely untamed and several
communities threatened, the worst days of a terrible siege appeared to be over.
The toll by day's end: 695 square miles burned and 1,609 homes destroyed, with
damage estimated by the state Department of Insurance at more than $1 billion."
Louis Sahagun, Hector Becerra, and Mitchell Landsberg report the Los Angeles
Times lead-all Oct. 25, 2007.
