BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KABC) -- Firefighters are making headway on several lightning-caused wildfires in Central California.
Three groupings of wildfires in Kern County covered 95 square miles.
The 24,100-acre Comanche complex of fires is 60 percent contained. That's up from 30-percent containment Monday.

In northern Kern County, the 29,383-acre Breckenridge Complex remained 30 percent contained and was burning in Sequoia National Forest and other federal land Monday night.
