Wildfires Rage in California - 03 Jun 2013
Images from California where a trio of drought-fueled wildfires burned out of control on Sunday as shifting winds and other adverse weather conditions hampered fire-fighting efforts.

The Powerhouse wildfire in California's Lake Hughes area, 65 miles (105 km) north of Los Angeles, had destroyed six houses,
said Ronald Ashdale, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service.

The wildfire was threatening more than 1,000 homes and had already charred 19,500 acres (7,700 hectares), the Forest Service said, adding that the blaze was not expected to be contained before Wednesday.
