SANTA ROSA, California (AP) – Firefighters aided by brief calm weather before another windstorm arrives have battled overnight to make progress against a fire in California’s wine country that’s destroyed dozens of homes. The Kincade Fire is over 74,000 acres and 15% contained. About 30,000 people who had been evacuated on the western side of the blaze have been allowed home – at least temporarily.
