A blistering heat wave gripped California this week, with temperatures in some areas reaching record highs and expected to keep rising into the Labor Day weekend, while wildfires across the region sent irritating smoke through the air, threatened homes and shut down a key freeway as holiday travel began.

Smoke from wildfires in Northern California and OR were blamed for the heatwave.

- Dozens of cooling centers opened throughout California, schools let students out early and outdoor events were cancelled as temperatures soared from a heat wave expected to last through the Labor Day weekend.

Areas inland from the San Francisco Bay Area could reach 115, a temperature last seen in 1950, forecasters said.

Bay Area Rapid Transit spokeswoman Alicia Trost says the rail line was reducing its speed until late Saturday because hot weather can expand and shift metal tracks.
