Toll from N. California’s ferocious wildfires continued to grow

As of Tuesday evening (PDT) the fires had destroyed 2,000 structures and killed at least 17 people, with more than 170 other reported as missing.

  • Eleven of the fatalities, and the missing reports are from Sonoma County.
  • Large sections of the city of Santa Rosa have been razed by the Tubbs fire, making it look like the war-stricken city of Aleppo in Syria.
  • At least six more fatalities have been reported in Napa, Mendocino, and Yuba Counties, Cal Fire said.

The two largest fires, the Tubbs fire and the Atlas Peak fire in Napa County, have consumed  27,000 and 25,000 acres, respectively, Cal Fire reported.

About 30,000 people are under mandatory evacuation orders.

“17 large wildfires that started in the past 24 hours continue to burn across California and have burned over 115,000 acres. The winds that fanned these fires Sunday night and Monday morning have decreased significantly, but local winds and dry conditions continue to pose a challenge. With the decrease in the winds combined with cooler weather, firefighters made good progress overnight. Sheriff officials have confirmed that 11 people have died as a result of the wildfires in Sonoma, Mendocino, Napa and Yuba counties. These fires have already burned an estimated 1,500 homes and commercial structures. Several Damage Assessment Teams have been deployed to get a full account of the destruction.

“Yesterday Governor Brown declared a State of Emergency in Napa, Sonoma, and Yuba Counties, as well as a State of Emergency in Butte, Lake, Mendocino, Nevada and Orange counties.

“Red Flag Warnings in Southern California due to gusty winds and high fire risk remain in place, but are expected to end later this morning. The warnings in Northern California have all ended, but breezy and dry conditions remain.”
