California Residents Complain About Lack Of Warning

Some residents in Southern California say they

weren't warned about last week's wildfires.

Angry survivors complained last night in a town hall meeting in

San Diego. Officials say they gave sufficient warnings.

Meantime, Firefighters in Southern California are still trying

to gain control of about a half-dozen wildfires that are all at

least half contained.

And for families who have lost everything, the long process of

rebuilding has already begun.

FEMA has already received nearly 8,300 applications for aid and

visited 641 homes to assess damage in the seven counties declared

major federal disaster areas.

Some help can be offered quickly, but larger decisions could

take weeks.

As of yesterday, the agency had paid out $600,000.

The most active of the remaining fires is in Orange County,

covering more than 28,000 acres with 65 percent containment.

In all, 14 people died and more than 2,000 homes were lost.
