Thousands Evacuate As Wildfires Continue To Burn In Northern California

Approximately 7,700 forest fires in California have burned 350,000 hectares of land until as of Monday. County officials had not released the woman's identity as of Tuesday morning. The dead were reported in Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino and Yuba counties. More than 5,000 homes have been evacuated, The Los Angeles Times reported.

Williams could feel the heat of her fire through the auto as she fled. At least seven people died in its Sonomoa County hospitals of fire-related injuries, and the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office says fatalities could increase.

Due to an extreme wind, the wildfires cannot be controlled immediately, and "in last 24 hours, more than 18 wildfires.have collectively burned more than 80,000 acres (323.7 square km)", he said.

If you're local, the Sonoma Valley Visitor's Bureau has a list of hotels offering special rates for evacuees and the Sacramento Bee has a list of ways for local people to help.

"These fires have destroyed structures and continue to threaten thousands of homes, necessitating the evacuation of thousands of residents", as the proclamation said. Several Damage Assessment Teams have been activated to get a full account of the destruction. The California State Highway Patrol suspects she was trying to escape the flames when she died. Entire subdivisions have been leveled in Sonoma County. "Figure out what we're gonna do", she said.

Ninety per cent of grapes had been picked before the fires started, with nearly all of those still on the vine Cabernet Savignon, a thick-skinned variety that is not expected to be impacted by smoke from the fires.

The US National Weather Service issued a warning for the San Francisco area, noting that "any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly". The winds were expected to subside at midday. But the California Department of Forestry and Fire Prevention (Cal Fire) reports that, as of Mondayevening, there were 15 large fires and numerous smaller blazes in surrounding areas, including in Calistoga, Glen Ellen and Carneros, as well as in surrounding counties. "Our heart goes out to our friends and neighbors as we come together in solidarity through this hard time".
