Firefighter Brendon Gorman ignites backfire to stop the Soberanes Fire's spread along Palo Colorado Road near Big SurBy Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Crews battling a deadly wildfire in rugged, drought-stricken terrain north of Los Angeles made steady progress in containing the blaze on Wednesday, after a bulldozer operator helping to fight a smaller wildfire in central California died overnight when the machine overturned, officials said. Some 3,000 firefighters battling the so-called Sand Fire in the Angeles National Forest had extended containment lines around 40 percent of the 38,350-acre (15,520 hectare) blaze by Wednesday morning, according to fire information officer Sam Wu. The blaze has destroyed 18 homes as it has torn through drought-stricken chaparral and brush, spewing out smoke that has prompted the South Coast Air Quality Management District to warn residents in parts of Los Angeles County to avoid outdoor activities.

"It was completely unexpected to find a human-associated bacterium to produce a real antibiotic," said study co-author Andreas Peschel of the University of Tubingen in Germany.
