Now that most of the flames are out, the state is stepping in to offer
additional help to fire victims in Southern California.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger got a personal tour of burned out areas Thursday (10/16). He listened to fire victims recount the terror of fleeing the flames and the emotions of losing their homes.

The Governor praised neighbors for pulling together in a crisis and pledged additional aid to victims.

Fire officials have determined the Sesnon Fire was caused by a downed power line. That fire is now 70-percent contained.
