No containment, new threats from Northern California fire

VOA says wildfire burning for a week in Northern California continued to grow out of control, one of about a dozen big blazes in the drought-stricken state that have destroyed hundreds of homes and forced thousands of people to evacuate.  

There was zero containment Sunday of the Caldor Fire, which had charred nearly 399 square kilometers (154 square miles) of trees and brush in the northern Sierra Nevada after breaking out August 14. The cause was under investigation.  

Firefighters hoped to take advantage of calmer weather and cooler temperatures a day after gusts pushed the fire across U.S. Route 50, threatening more remote communities in El Dorado County.
