Authorities said more than 120 people sought minor medical care and that a child was in critical condition after being crushed by a fireplace. California governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in the wake of the 3:20 am quake, which ignited fires, burst water mains, caused gas leaks and even cracked roads.
