Firefighters say 150 homes remain in danger, but they are hoping to get a little help from the weather as the day progresses.
The wind died down overnight, which allowed them to make progress against the two fires burning in Kern County.
The first big fire is just outside of Tehachapi, about 100 mile north of Los Angeles.
It has already burned about 25 structures and forced hundred of people to evacuate.
There are still about 150 structures that are potentially in the line of the fire, which is only 25 percent contained.
The second big fire is just to the north.
That fire has also destroyed several structures and also forced evacuations.
Two firefighters battling that blaze have suffered minor injuries.
Altogether the two fires have scorched more than 15,000 acres.
Fire investigators are still working to determine exactly what caused each fire.
