Wed Oct 24, 9:20 PM ET

Adam Castillo and other members of the Orange County Fire Authority Strike Team prepare to move out to cut fire breaks in Live Oak Canyon in eastern Orange County, Calif., Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2007. A merciful easing of the winds fueling Southern California's sprawling wildfires finally gave fire crews a chance to fight back against some blazes Wednesday, and weary residents could take solace in an overriding sign of hope: Just one person has died from the flames.
