LAKE ISABELLA, Calif. (AP) -

Fire officials say 200 homes and other buildings have now been destroyed in a deadly wildfire burning in central California.
    
The Kern County Fire Department reports that firefighters were making progress Sunday in establishing a perimeter around the 58-square-mile blaze. Fire officials say most of the flames are now within that perimeter.
    
An elderly couple was found dead after becoming overcome by smoke and authorities say the death toll may rise.
    
Firefighters are hoping to take advantage of lighter winds, but a dry air mass over the area will continue to bring high temperatures and low humidity.
