Power Lines Ignite Wildfires

California's state fire agency says sparking power lines ignited the largest of the wildfires that ravaged Southern California last month.

The fire burned over 300 square miles, destroying more than 1,000 homes and killing two people.

The agency says fire blew into the heart of north San Diego from canyons to the east and merged with a smaller fire that was also caused by power line sparks.
