The fire has so far destroyed more than 2,300 structures, including more than 1,790 homes.

The number of deaths directly attributed to the fires officially rose to seven.

SAN DIEGO IN FLAMES

SAN DIEGO – Faced with unrelenting winds whipping wildfires into a frenzy across Southern California, firefighters conceded defeat on many fronts Tuesday to an unstoppable force that has chased an estimated 1 million people away.

Unless the shrieking Santa Ana winds subside, and that’s not expected for at least another day, fire crews say they can do little more than try to wait it out and react — tamping out spot fires and chasing ribbons of airborne embers to keep new fires from flaring.

“If it’s this big and blowing with as much wind as it’s got, it’ll go all the way to the ocean before it stops,” said San Diego Fire Capt. Kirk Humphries. “We can save some stuff but we can’t stop it.”

A dramatic light and sound show heralded the long-awaited handover of the first Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft, to an airline.

The A380 has been beset by a series of costly production delays and dogged by alleged management scandals.
Airbus claims the aircraft will transform travellers’ experience of flying by offering a much quieter and more spacious cabin than its rivals.

Compared with the Boeing 747-400 jumbo jets, the A380 makes a quarter of the noise coming into land, uses 12% less fuel and produces 17% less carbon dioxide.
