Calm Winds Aid SoCal Firefighters

Since Thursday, wildfires have consumed 34 square miles of  Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange and Santa Barbara Counties. Over 800 homes have been destroyed. The air quality is so poor that the Pasadena marathon had be canceled. Yet, this weekend's calm winds have allowed firefighters to make major progress against the blaze. Additionally, no deaths have been reported in this latest episode of fires - the silver lining in the smoke.
