    Post CA Firefighters face more than flames

    Firefighters warned about armed residents in evacuated areas

    (Julian, California-AP) -- Firefighters battling blazes that are
    scorching Southern California have a new problem: armed residents.
    Some people who've refused to evacuate are becoming frightened
    by reports of looting, and are arming themselves.
    One resident became alarmed after seeing people walking near his
    property with flashlights. He waved a 45-caliber handgun in the
    face of a visitor, who turned out to be a firefighter.
    A spokesman for the Department of Forestry says that when people
    in rural areas hear about looters, "they get nervous."
    Firefighters have been told to be extra careful in dealing with
    residents.
