Wildfires Prompt State of Emergency in California


California Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency on Friday as a string of wildfires raged across the state.

The severe drought and extreme weather has "turned much of the state into a tinderbox," Brown said.

About 9,000 were working to control 34 large wildfires on Sunday. One of them died while battling a fire in the Modoc National Forest.
