The Whittier fire in California putting on a menacing show as it continues to burn through the Santa Barbara County hills. The blaze burning for a week now has charred 13,000 acres and destroyed eight homes with no relief in sight. People forced to pack up their belongings after additional evacuations were ordered Friday night. SOUNDBITE: KERRY SAWYER, RESIDENT, SAYING: "So now it's rush-rush, unpack the house because I don't know if it's going to be here when I get back." The wildfire is one of dozens raging across parched Western states in the U.S. Hot, dry conditions are threatening to stoke more blazes through the weekend. Firefighters battling the Whittier fire are building contingency lines in the event strong winds push flames toward heavily populated communities. SOUNDBITE: MIKE MCMILLAN, WHITTIER FIRE DEPARTMENT, SAYING: "They're just getting ready in case they need to begin any sort of burning operation, should the fire come out of the hills into the front country." So far this year, more than twice as much land mass in California has been charred by flames compared to the same time last year.
