A firefighter watches as flames approach a fire truck as the Poomacha wildfire rages on the La Jolla Indian Reservation in Southern California, October 25, 2007. No firefighters were injured and the truck was not damaged. California wildfires that have destroyed 1,300 homes and forced the evacuation of 500,000 people raged into a fifth day on Thursday, but firefighters seized on a break in the weather to largely halt the march of destruction.
