CALIFORNIA WILDFIRES: Tragedy Grows

Ten days after it began, the Camp fire -- now considered California’s worst wildfire ever -- was still only 60-percent contained. It has burned 149,500 acres and more than 12,790 structures. The death toll in the Northern California blaze reached 76 Saturday. More than 1,275 people are still unaccounted for. Adding to the area's woes, air quality is terrible and poses a public health hazard. On the hopeful side, weather forecasters are expecting a substantial rainfall in the area by Wednesday, which would be a huge help to those fighting the fire.


Tijuana Residents Protest Against Migrant Caravan - 

Local residents in the border city of Tijuana, Mexico are marching in protest of the migrant caravan heading the U.S.

They were seen chanting and waving the Mexican flag yesterday in a show of opposition to the arrival of a caravan of mainly Central Americans seeking asylum. The Tijuana residents marched to a migrant shelter in the town, continuing days of hostility between the two groups.

Many of the protesters blame the Mexican president for the easy crossing by parts of the caravan.

Central American migrants began trickling into the Mexican border city as early as last Sunday, but the conflict with locals in Tijuana didn't kick off until Thursday when the bulk of the caravan arrived.
