Emergency crews in California say they are optimistic they can control an intense wildfire that has been burning since Wednesday north of Los Angeles. The fire is still spreading but forest official Mike Dietrich said crews had done "fabulous work" to slow it down. The blaze has spread over 190 sq miles (492 sq km), destroying 53 buildings and threatening 12,000 more - causing damage already estimated at $13m (8m).
