California Statewide Fire Summary

Saturday, October 14, 2017

 

 

Gusty winds increased early this morning forcing new evacuations and

sparking a new large wildfire in Lake County. Currently more than 10,000

firefighters are battling 16 large wildfires that in total have burned over

214,000 acres. Approximately 100,000 people have been evacuated from

the fires. These fires have been extremely destructive with 5,700

structures estimated to have been destroyed. While crews continue their

search for missing people, the death toll has risen to 35.

 

 

Red Flag Warnings remain in effect across Northern California due to

strong north winds, which have already increased fire activity. Those

winds are forecast through the day and expected to decrease by late

tonight. A Red Flag Warning is also in effect in Southern California through

the weekend.
