Wildfires continued to burn across the state over the weekend, with about 50,000 people under evacuation orders. Four civilians and two firefighters have died in the Carr Fire in Shasta County, which had burned nearly 90,000 acres and was 5 percent contained as of Sunday morning. We'll get the latest on that blaze, as well as fires in Napa, Mendocino, and one near Yosemite which has forced the closure of the national park at least until Friday.
