Gov. Says Crews Exhausted By Cal Wildfires

GOLETA, Calif. (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says the 400
National Guard troops he's ordered in will relieve the exhausted firefighters who have been battling California's raging wildfires.

The governor paid a visit Saturday to the Goleta command post of a blaze that's burned 13 square miles of brush in Santa Barbara County. The fire has prompted an evacuation order for thousands of homes and is 14 percent contained, fire officials said.
