Northern California wildfires leave at least three dead

A Northern California wildfire threatened thousands of homes on Thursday after winds whipped it into a monster that incinerated houses in a small mountain community and killed at least three people. Several other people were critically burned and hundreds, if not thousands, of homes and other buildings were believed to have been damaged or destroyed in the foothills of the northern Sierra Nevada, authorities said.
