Wind shift expected to help suppress deadly California wildfire
Sun, 31 Jul 2016 00:20:08 -0400
By Michael Fiala CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA, Calif. (Reuters) - A deadly wildfire near California's Big Sur coast raged mostly unchecked for a ninth day after gutting nearly 60 dwellings and forcing hundreds from homes and campgrounds, but a wind shift late on Saturday was expected to help firefighters quell the blaze. The so-called Soberanes Fire, which erupted on July 22 just south of the oceanside town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, has roared through more than 35,000 acres (14,164 hectares) of drought-parched chaparral, grass and timber in and around the Los Padres National Forest. The fire zone grew by several thousand acres on Saturday, even as firefighters hacked away more vegetation to keep containment lines extended around 15 percent of its expanding perimeter, officials said.

Pope Francis was set to celebrate mass Sunday with some 1.6 million pilgrims in a vast plain outside Krakow, wrapping up a emotionally-charged trip which took him to Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz. At the evening vigil, his main address to pilgrims, Francis chastised "drowsy and dull kids who confuse happiness with a sofa", urging them to get out and live life rather than spend it glued to smartphones.
