California Fire Update...22 Large Fires, 170,000 Acres, 17 Deaths, 3,500 Homes & Businesses Destroyed

Napa, CA...Overnight fire conditions were very active on several fronts forcing additional evacuations across Northern California. Firefighters are battling 22 large wildfires that have burned nearly 170,000 acres. Firefighters are bracing for the winds to shift this evening and increase in speed. 17 people are confirmed to have died in the wildfires this week. 11 people alone died in the Tubbs Fire, making it the 6th deadliest fire in our state’s history.




 

While damage assessment continues on all the fires, it is estimated that at least 3,500 homes and commercial structures have been destroyed by the fast-moving wildfires. Emergency Declarations have been proclaimed by Governor Brown for Napa, Sonoma, and Yuba Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada, Orange and Solano counties.

 Red Flag Warnings have been issued for much of Northern California due to gusty winds and low humidity starting today. While these winds may hamper the efforts of firefighters, they will also increase the risk for new wildfires.  Residents are urged to remain prepared for wildfires and have an evacuation plan in place.

They have the money for the installation of those things at numerous locations throughout the County.
