A DC-10 airplane drops gallons of retardant to help put out the wildfire in Tehachapi, Calif. on Monday, Sept. 5, 2011. Officials now say the wildfire burning near Tehachapi in Kern County has destroyed a dozen homes and doubled in size. The fire was sparked Sunday when a single-engine Cessna plane crashed. Ground crews are working to clear a fire break between the fire and the trailer, ranch and vacation homes in communities south of Tehachapi, a city of 8,000 south of Bakersfield.
