    California crews begin to tame two Orange County wildfires as winds ebb

    Weakening winds overnight enabled firefighters in Southern California to begin to corral two raging wildfires that left two front-line crew members hospitalized and were threatening tens of thousands of homes, authorities said on Wednesday. Fire authorities reported significant progress in setting up containment lines around the two Orange County blazes, the latest eruptions in a year in which the state's hills, valleys and forests have been scorched throughout its North-South span. With crews of more than 1,300 fighting the two blazes, the Orange County Fire Authority said they had widened containment of the Silverado fire to 25% from 5% on Tuesday, after it charred through 13,354 acres (5,404 hectares).
