This week's high temperatures have done nothing to help firefighters battling wildfires across California. On Sunday, the Sawmill Fire broke out just east of Cloverdale and on Monday, the Loma Fire started in the Santa Cruz Mountains. That's in addition to the Soberanes Fire in Monterey County, which is now the most expensive blaze in American history, with costs exceeding $200 million.
