An out-of-control wildfire in Northern California threatened more than 2,000 homes and consumed huge swaths of timber land east of Sacramento while another town near the Oregon Border took reckoning of the damage done by a wildfire that burned 200 homes earlier in the week. In the fire east of Sacramento, 2,500 firefighters were taking on the blaze that was threatening 2,003 homes and another 1,505 smaller structures, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. "It’s been an explosive couple of days," CalFire spokesman Daniel Berlant said.
