Strong Winds Whip Up Wildfires In California As Thousands Lose Power

Wind fueled wildfires were still burning uncontrolled in California early Tuesday morning.

Firefighters battled blazes threatening thousands of homes in a race against time as stronger winds are expected later.

Reuters reports that thousands of residents have already fled and hundreds of thousands of others have lost power.

Power outages are the result of power companies cutting off electricity in an effort to prevent more fires from snapped cables.
