Better weather gives leg up to crews on California wildfires

A house stands intact above one that was destroyed by wildfire near Atlas Peak Road on Monday in Napa, Calif. State and local officials say they are trying to get people back into their homes, but they cautioned that it could take days and even weeks for neighborhoods hard hit by Northern California wildfires.

The Alejos home was not damaged by the fire that destroyed homes all around theirs, but smoke damage and no power made it unlivable for now.
Two cars are among the remains Monday at the house where Sara and Charles Rippey died a week ago in a fast-moving wildfire in Napa, Calif. The couple, 98- and 100-years-old, respectively, had been married over 75 years. With the winds dying down, fire crews gained ground as they battled wildfires that have devastated California wine country and other parts of the state over the past week, and thousands of people got the all-clear to return home.
