California wildfires: Power down as strong winds expected

Residents in California are braced for another round of power outages, aimed at preventing expected strong gusts from sparking more blazes this weekend.

Fires destroyed dozens of buildings in northern California wine country and in subdivisions on the outskirts of Los Angeles, where flames shut down a freeway and smoke forced schools to close.

Officials are trying to gain some control of the flames as the wind tapers off, with some of the strongest gusts in years forecast for the weekend.
