By Curtis Skinner SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Firefighters kept battling blazes across drought-parched California on Thursday, and thousands of them made solid progress against a wildfire that has forced 150 people to evacuate homes outside of San Francisco. Firefighters had drawn containment lines around about 33 percent of the so-called Jerusalem Fire, which grew overnight to cover 23,500 acres (9,510 hectares) by Thursday morning, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire). The inferno, which is charring ranch land north of Napa Valley wine country some 100 miles (160 km) outside of San Francisco, has displaced about 150 people and threatens at least 50 more houses and ranches, Cal fire said.
