Progress made fighting California wildfires

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The number of wildfires in southern California has grown from nine to ten.

The fires are being blamed for one death so far, after a man was found badly burned at a camp.

A break from the heat wave allowed crews to make progress Friday.

Firefighters built containment lines as helicopters and planes dumped fire-suppressing materials.

One fire is now 10 percent contained.

Evacuation orders have been lifted in some places, but tens of thousands of people are still not able to return home.

Dozens now have no home to return to at all.

"It's absolutely heartbreaking," said Capt. Kendall Bortisser, with CAL Fire. "We sign on in this profession to protect life and property. Anytime a home is destroyed, we lose a life, that hits all of us hard."

More firefighters arrived in the area Friday, giving a break to crews.

Some had been battling the flames for 36 hours straight.
