California fires: warnings for Los Angeles, progress up northFirefighters made progress battling a fire raging in northern California's wine country on Wednesday as rare "extreme" red flag warnings were issued for much of the Los Angeles region.

"We expect the Santa Anas to be howling," the NWS said.
