LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California residents have two more days in the heat before the weather begins to cool off. Forecasters say inland Los Angeles and Orange County could hit triple digits, and the San Diego area could see temperatures in the upper 90s. Meanwhile, Hurricane Odile made landfall last night near Cabo San Lucas at the south end of Mexico's Baja Peninsula.

(AP) -- Six firefighters suffered minor injuries fighting a wildfire in Orange County's Silverado Canyon, many of them from heat exhaustion. Evacuation orders for about 200 homes in the area were lifted late yesterday. The fire is now about 50 percent contained and at last word covered one-and-a-half square miles.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A new poll shows that despite widespread worry about the effects of illegal immigration, California voters broadly support a path to legalization for immigrants in the United States without proper documents. The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll shows three in four of those surveyed support an overhaul of federal immigration laws.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - Police have arrested a 59-year-old man suspected of shooting at a group of children who were surrounding an ice cream truck in San Bernardino. The arrest followed a nine-hour standoff that ended when police fired pyrotechnic tear gas into the man's house late last night and captured him when he jumped out a window.
