Statewide Fire Summary, Fatalities Holding at 42, 245,000 Acres, 6,900 Structures Destroyed, 15,000 Remain Evacuated

Sacramento, CA...Over 10,000 firefighters continue making progress on 9 large wildfires burning across California. Yesterday, cooler temperatures and higher humidity aided firefighters in their efforts and allowed for additional evacuations to be lifted. Just over 15,000 people remain evacuated by the fires. As the damage assessment continues latest estimates now put the destruction at an estimated 6,900 structures.   Overall weather conditions in Northern California will remain cooler as a light storm system moves into the region bringing rain in some areas in the late hours and overnight. A Red Flag Warning is in effect to the Tahoe Basin and the Eastern Sierra for gusty winds and low humidity. Gusts up to 50mph are possible.  Since the start of the October Fire Siege on Sunday, October 8, CAL FIRE has responded to 250 new wildfires. At the peak of the wildfires there were 21 major wildfires that, in total, have burned over 245,000 acres, 11,000 firefighters battled the destructive fires that at one time forced 100,000 to evacuate, destroyed an estimated 6,900 structures, and sadly, took the lives of 42 people.
