Hope grows as deadly Northern California blaze slows down


REDDING, Calif. — The deadly Northern California wildfire that has forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes slowed down Sunday after days of explosive growth, giving officials hope even as they announced the discovery of a sixth fatality.

Meanwhile officials said a second firefighter died fighting a huge blaze to the south near Yosemite National Park. The firefighter was treated for injuries at the scene Sunday but died before he could be hospitalized, said Mike Theune, a spokesman for the so-called Ferguson Fire. The firefighter was part of a crew removing brush and other fuel near the fire's front lines, Theune said. He didn't have additional details.
