Firefighters in California who got some help from the weather Sunday may not like the forecast in the days ahead.

Temperatures will climb back into the 90s by later this week. And the moist air currents that kept Sunday highs to the upper 70s will go away.

Nearly 2,700 homes near Goleta in Santa Barbara County were in jeopardy earlier in the weekend, but many of the evacuation orders were lifted or changed to warnings by last night. That's allowed many people to return home.

Wildfires have burned more than 800 square miles of land in California and destroyed about 70 homes in the past two weeks.

One firefighter died of a heart attack while digging fire lines.
