A Sobering California Fire Update...73,000 Acres, 1,500 Homes Lost, One Fatality

Napa, CA...Overnight significant winds fanned over a dozen fires across Northern California. 15 new wind whipped wildfires in nine counties have already burned over 73,000 acres in the past 12 hours. Firefighters have been challenged with winds gusting in excess of 50mph causing extreme rates of spread and volatile burning conditions. Governor Brown has declared a State of Emergency in Napa, Sonoma, and Yuba Counties. One confirmed fatality has occurred in Mendocino County, with several reports of injuries to civilians. The focus continues to be the evacuations of thousands of residents and protecting property.




These fires have already burned an estimated 1,500 homes and commercial structures. Several Damage Assessment Teams have been activated to get a full account of the destruction.

The strong winds are expected to decrease today, but Red Flag Warnings due to gusty winds and high fire risk remain in place across many parts of the State.

Residents across the State are urged to remain prepared for wildfires as extremely dry conditions continue. The potential for an increase in winds later in the week could challenge the efforts of firefighters. Learn more evacuation tips: ReadyForWildfire.org

This is a great opportunity to get more area to grow medical marijuana. Think of all the benefits to the economies of these areas! Like a cancer, we can move in invasion-style. Quietly, yet swiftly. Once we are there, we will be too rooted in for the local governments to deal with. Muhahahahahaha!!! Its for the kids! Medicine! We are to flush with cash to stop us! Muhahahahahaha!!!

    My lord almighty. Talk about this world going to "hell in a basket." It's not ISIS, North Korea, or natural disasters. Let's all get stoned and pretend we are in second heavin. Be "totally" oblivious to the real world. Old hippie here but not engulfed with DILUSION. So hurting to see this corruption.

          Probably some minimum wage high-school drop out made that comment. But, it does show you what scumbags these people really are. Lock them up, throw away the key. Their salads will be tossed by the really bad guys !

*Actually it's at least 10 dead now.*
Those winds were ferocious. Better hope no one is careless around here.

Ignorant hillbillies are right, and then some azz wipe thinks it's all because of a certain political party.
What a bunch of sad, ignorant nitwits we have living up here.
Beautiful country and ugly residents.

    Agree fully. Too bad, it used to be much better up here, then all the Bay Area liberals started moving up. They are ignorant and nasty, aren't they?
