MIDDLETOWN, Calif. – The latest on wildfires raging in drought-stricken California (All times local):
The number of homes destroyed in a Sierra Nevada wildfire in Amador and Calaveras counties has risen to 135, up from 81.
That fire was 30 percent contained on Monday.
A separate destructive wildfire burning 100 miles north of San Francisco has grown to 95 square miles.
California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Daniel Berlant says containment is at 5 percent.
The fire has destroyed 400 homes and many other structures including barns and outbuildings, and there's a report of a fatality.
Forecasters say Northern California weather conditions are changing as low pressure approaches the West Coast. That will mean cooling, increasing winds, higher humidity and showers, then more widespread precipitation Wednesday.
