Tens of thousands evacuated as California wildfires spreadMuch of California was on high alert Friday as wind-driven wildfires tore through the state’s south, forcing the evacuation of tens of thousands of people and destroying multiple structures and homes. News reports said an 89-year-old woman died in Calimesa, about 70 miles (115 kilometers) east of Los Angeles, when fire swept through a mobile home park overnight after the driver of a garbage truck that caught fire dumped his burning load nearby. Another man in his 50s died Thursday night from cardiac arrest as he spoke with firefighters battling the so-called Saddleridge brush fire in the San Fernando Valley, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) north of downtown Los Angeles, fire officials said.
