October 10, 2017 - 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 CalFirewinds 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.

Historically, October is when California experiences its largest and most damaging wildfires. Residents are asked to remain prepared for wildfires. Learn more evacuation tips by visiting www.ReadyForWildfire.org.
