Humidity Gives Hope in California

The latest wildfire in California is spreading— but some are saying its timing is actually not half-bad. High temperatures on Friday caused the fire, located about 50 miles northwest of Los Angeles, to nearly triple in size to 43 square miles. But forecasters now say that increased humidity this weekend will help the over 900 firefighters battling the blaze to fight back. The fire, which began on Thursday and has taken 15 structures, will hopefully be hindered in its progress by lower temperatures and higher humidity. Let's hope, for once, that the bad weather holds.
