Gov. declares emergency in California wildfire
MARYSVILLE, Calif. — Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared a state of emergency in a Northern California county after a wildfire forced the evacuation of more than 100 people and destroyed two homes.
State fire officials say there is no longer any threat to homes in Yuba County, and all evacuations have been lifted.
The blaze burned nearly 4,000 acres, or six square miles and is 90 percent contained.
Schwarzenegger's proclamation frees up state funds and resources to help firefighters and property owners.
