CLEARLAKE OAKS, Calif. (AP) - The largest wildfire in rural Northern California is burning out of control. The Pawnee Fire destroyed 12 buildings, threatened hundreds more and forced thousands of people to flee. It was one of several wildfires burning as wind and heat gripped a swath of California from San Jose to the Oregon border. The cause of each blaze is under investigation. No one was reported hurt.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Authorities say two officers who were wounded when a man opened fire at a San Diego condominium are expected to recover. Police Chief David Nisleit told reporters Sunday that both male officers were stable, with one in serious condition and the other with less serious injuries. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that officers responding to a report of a violent disturbance got no response to a knock at the door and were met with gunfire when they forced it open.

NEW YORK (AP) - San Francisco is marking gay pride with its annual march through the heart of the city. More than 240 contingents, including floats, groups and other participants, are taking part. This year's theme is "Generations of Strength." On the other coast, throngs of people are turning out in New York City for the annual parade. The marches commemorate the riots that erupted in response to a police raid at a New York gay bar called the Stonewall Inn in June 1969.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - U.S. restaurants have turned over their kitchens to refugee chefs so they can prepare sampling platters of their country's cuisine and share a taste of their home. The Refugee Food Festival has come to the United States for the first time, with restaurants in San Francisco and New York taking part. The aspiring chefs serving food in San Francisco are from Myanmar, Bhutan, Syria and Senegal.
