The remains of a demolished home with vehicle out front are seen in the community of Squirrel Valley in Lake Isabella, California, on June 24, 2016Firefighters on Saturday battled a deadly California blaze that has killed two people and destroyed at least 150 homes after rapidly taking over large swaths of land. Hot temperatures, bone-dry conditions that make brush and grass flammable, and high winds of up to 40 miles per hour (64 kilometers per hour) helped spread the fast-moving blaze that erupted late Thursday afternoon in the Lake Isabella area of Kern County. The National Weather Service predicted the thermostat would reach 99 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius) on Sunday.
