Fast-moving wildfires kill 10, spur evacuations in Northern California

Yet another catastrophe. 1,500 structures destroyed. Santa Rosa, wasted.




Fast-moving wildfires kill 10, spur evacuations in Northern California

Deadly wildfires roared across California on Monday, forcing evacuations and destroying homes and businesses in their paths. The biggest fires burned in the wine country of Napa and Sonoma counties.

Here's what we know so far, according to California authorities.
Ten people have died and the number is expected to grow.
More than 100 people were being treated at Napa- and Sonoma-area hospitals for fire-related injuries or health issues including burns, smoke inhalation and shortness of breath.
An estimated 1,500 structures have been destroyed and 57,000 acres burned in eight counties.
A wildfire in Anaheim, in Southern California, has spread to 4,000-5,000 acres and burned at least six buildings.
The devastation was significant in Santa Rosa, a town of about 175,000.

The fire left whole blocks of residences in smoking ruins and destroyed landmark buildings like the Fountaingrove Inn, a 124-room hotel; a nearby event center, the Fountaingrove Round Barn; and classrooms at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported.

A large part of the town was evacuated, including Kaiser Permanente Hospital and Sutter Hospital. Authorities imposed a sundown-to-sunrise curfew for parts of the city under evacuation orders.

Maybe Trump can go there and toss squirt guns out to the crowd.
