SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Things are looking up for firefighters in Northern California today, thanks to some cooler weather.
Officials say a fire that spread across nearly six square miles in Napa County and moved into Solano County is now 40 percent contained.
South of San Francisco, a fire that started in Santa Cruz County Friday has been contained after charring just less than a square mile. That fire forced roughly 2,000 people to flee their homes.
However, firefighters in southern New Mexico are still trying to stop a wildfire that has consumed more than 67 square miles of grass and brush since starting in the Lincoln National Forest.
A U.S. Forest Service spokesman says two other lightning-sparked wildfires have burned more than 46 square miles in New Mexico.
