UK air safety authorities investigate mid-air collision

FILE - in this Oct. 9, 2017 file photo, a helicopter dumps water on a home as firefighters battle a wildfire called Canyon Fire #2 in Anaheim Hills in Anaheim, Calif. Wildfires whipped by powerful winds swept through Northern California sending residents on a headlong flight to safety through smoke and flames as homes burned. The second of two destructive Southern California wildfires this fall was ignited by windblown embers from an oak that was still smoldering after an earlier fire that is believed to have started when a vehicle struck a highway flare, authorities said Monday.
