Firefighters search for victims in the rubble of a home burnt by the Valley Fire in MiddletownBy Curtis Skinner SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Firefighters battling two deadly wildfires in drought-stricken California have gained more ground and some displaced people were allowed to go home, officials said on Friday, even as the search went on for people reported missing. Two men and an elderly, disabled woman have been killed by the so-called Valley Fire, which has scorched 73,700 acres (29,825 hectares) just north of Napa County's wine-producing region, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Office. Authorities were still searching on Friday for people who had been reported missing, said Lake County Undersheriff Chris Macedo, although he could not provide an exact tally.
