California firefighters on Monday (July 30) gained ground on a massive wildfire that has killed six people and destroyed hundreds of homes, while rescuers searched for at least seven missing people. California is bearing the brunt of an extreme run of wildfires across the U.S. West, with erratic winds and record high temperatures charging blazes that have blackened nearly 410,000 acres, the state's highest year-to-date level in a decade.
