At least six Arizona fire departments are sending crews to help fight massive and deadly wildfires in northern and southern California. The Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management says about 144 firefighters and 42 engines have either arrived or are heading to California to send supplies and battle the flames. Department officials say the firefighters are on a minimum 14-day assignment with the majority of them going to Southern California.

Some residents who fled Southern California's huge wildfire were allowed to return home Monday but hundreds of thousands remained under evacuation orders as authorities said the number of homes that burned was expected to grow significantly.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby says that Firefighters managed to prevent about 57,000 homes from destruction by the so-called Woosley fire as it raged along a path 20 miles long and 14 miles wide from northwestern Los Angeles through suburbs and the Santa Monica Mountains to the Malibu coast.

Authorities in eastern Arizona said Monday that a man hanging out with patrons inside a bar suddenly opened fire on them, killing two and wounding two others. Globe Police Chief Dale Walters said the 22-year-old suspect shot the victims Sunday night not long after all of them had been playing pool together. All four victims are from the Globe area, which is roughly 90 miles east of Phoenix. Three of them knew each other. Police said it's not clear if the suspect was previously known to any of them. Their names are not being released until additional family notifications can be made, authorities said. The shooting comes less than a week after a gunman killed 12 people at a Southern California bar in an unprovoked attack. The shooter died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
