Northern California Wildfire Claims 6 More Homes

Posted: Updated:
Fire officials say crews found six more homes destroyed by a Northern California wildfire that led to evacuation orders for about 1,200 people before it was brought under control.
 
Nineteen homes and 48 outbuildings were determined to have been destroyed by the Sand Fire in the Sierra Nevada foothills east of Sacramento.
 
The fire was 80% contained as of Tuesday morning and holding at a little under 6 square miles. Most of the evacuees were allowed to return home a day earlier.
 
State fire Battalion Chief Scott McLean says the continued progress against the fire has allowed officials to begin dispatching crews to other blazes. The fire is expected to be fully contained Friday.   (AP)
