LOS ANGELES (AP) - Residents in Ventura County, Calif., who were forced to flee ahead of a wind-driven wildfire are being allowed to return home this morning.
Residents in some 80 homes had to evacuate when a windy storm swept through the state and fanned flames. Two homes were destroyed.
The same storm system is threatening to leave up to 20 inches of snow in Colorado's mountains and up to 11 inches in the Denver area.
In Arizona, gusty winds created a dusty haze and closed 34 miles of Interstate 40 in the northern part of the state for several hours. And at least four people were injured in a pileup involving two semi-trucks.
