Fires Break Out Across Wine Country

Major Fires Breaking Out in Northern California; Structures, Vehicles Burning, Evacuations Ongoing, Victims Injured

An estimated 20,000 people have been evacuated, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Director Ken Pimlott said.

Gov. Jerry Brown issued a state of emergency for Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties. Evacuate to the east and shelter at Calistoga Fairgrounds.

Elderly people, children and those with respiratory illnesses are particularly susceptible to the smoky conditions and should take extra precautions, air district officials said.

The blazes engulfed acreage in Sonoma and Napa counties as responders worked through the night to fight the fires.

Evacuation orders are also in effect in an area north of the town of Oroville, where the Cherokee Fire has burned 1,00 acres. A call for mutual aid was issued to other Bay Area fire departments.

In southern California, a fast-moving wildfire in Anaheim is forcing some evacuations.

According to the Press Democrat, homes were destroyed as well as a historic barn in Santa Rosa, California.

"We gathered up a few of our things and our pets and headed out to our vehicle", he said.

There will be no regularly scheduled Santa Rosa CityBus service Monday as a result of the wildfires in the North Bay, Santa Rosa fire officials said.

Plainview man killed at construction site in NYC, police say
Co-worker Dennis Greaves, who knew Sayers and Perry, told The New York Times that Sayers was a good foreman. Neighbors say Perry had actually warned them he'd act out after getting fired from the site.

Cal Fire said firefighters were battling several blazes in Sonoma County. "It's getting bad and we don't have anyone here as far as fire trucks or police, at least in Sonoma Valley".

In total, SFGate reports there are now 14 fires burning across eight counties in Northern California, including other fires that were sparked in Butte, Yuba, and Nevada counties.

The fire boss said various individuals have been harmed and various inhabitants were accounted for missing.

Brian Alexander, a 34-year-old Santa Rosa resident, told CNN about stepping in to help his neighbors as the inferno surrounded his apartment complex.

A wind-whipped wildfire roared to life Sunday night, quickly growing to more than 200 acres on Atlas Peak near the Silverado County Club in Napa County, triggering dozens of evacuations. Guests were evacuated. "At this point we are unable to conduct business in any capacity", Hayman stated.

"I mean blazing, falling down on fire", he said.

Sonoma County: Two evacuation centers are open in the city of Sebastopol at the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center 390 Morris Street and another at the Veterans' Memorial Building at 282 South High Street.

San Francisco Chronicle reporter Kurtis Alexander shared footage on Twitter on Monday of both a Hilton hotel and a Kmart on fire in Santa Rosa.
