Yakima-based outfit sends crews to help battle California wildfires

The sheriff expects the death toll to climb. The flames destroyed over 3,500 buildings, including many homes, nearly 700 km of land, and led to the displacement of about 25,000 people. However, officers have begun identifying missing persons and are doing targeted searches of missing persons' homes.

"The kids were scared", said Patricia Ginochio, who opened her seaside restaurant for some 300 people to sleep.

Then she got a call from a friend: "You're not going to believe this".

"There's a lot of devastation out there, people running around who just lost everything". Fatalities have also been reported in Napa, Mendocino, Yuba and Solano counties.

While no one fire currently burning has killed that many, collectively this is the deadliest series of simultaneous fires in the state since records have been kept.The blazes, most of them in wine country, broke out almost all at once on Sunday night.

Napa Police Chief Steve Potter didn't sugarcoat it. Manned roadblocks were set up between Sonoma and devastated areas of Santa Rosa.

The scenic Signorello Estate winery at 4500 Silverado Trail in Napa, a family-owned business that started in 1977, was destroyed in the Alta Peak fire that began Sunday night.

But optimism is beginning to creep into the reports of fire officials.

Prof Butzke insisted that California is "so innovative and quick to rebuild" that the tourism industry should survive.

The nightmare continued on Tuesday evening as the fires burned on.

Officials say more than 8,000 firefighters were battling the blazes and additional resources also were coming from throughout the country and Canada and Australia. "He is especially mindful of those who mourn the loss of their loved ones and who fear for the lives of those still missing", the statement said.

State fire spokesman Daniel Berlant said 22 wildfires were burning Wednesday, up from 17 the day before. The strong winds that have hindered firefighters in recent days have already faded, but forecasts warn that they will return on Friday night. The winery, cellar door and manor house were spared by the blaze, according to its Facebook page.

There were no new mandatory evacuations related to the Tubbs fire overnight, but the town of Calistoga as well as large swaths of Santa Rosa and Sonoma County remained under evacuation orders, as the fire spread north and east Thursday.
