Wine Country Wildfires Spared Little In Their Paths

Eliason said fellow Santa Barbara County Fire public information officer Dave Zaniboni is working on the Mendocino Lake complex, which includes the Redwood, Potter and Sulfur fires that have burned a combined 32,000 acres in Mendocino and Lake counties.

The weather gave firefighters a bit of a respite on Tuesday as cooler temperatures, lower winds and coastal fog enabled them to make headway against the flames.

Fire has consumed or significantly damaged at least five wineries in Napa Valley in a blow to an industry that pumps $58 billion annually into the state's economy, and destroyed at least 3,500 homes and other structures, according to CalFire.

The latest round of evacuations comes after 20,000 people were ordered to leave when the fires broke out earlier this week. He said he regretted that he hadn't stayed, like his neighbors, standing on the roof with his hose, fighting the fire himself.

The largest fires were in Northern California's Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties, filling the picturesque landscape of the state's wine country with charred rubble and clouds of smoke.

All of it primed the state for disaster when two weather patterns got into position to play their roles in the drama.

Aarushi's parents did not murder her says Allahabad High Court
Initially, the UP police had suspected Talwars' servant Hemraj , who was missing after the murder, as the murderer. When they challenged the verdict in the Allahabad High Court , they blamed the CBI for "shoddy investigation".


"The sun is a pale yellow, that's how thick the smoke is", he said, adding that ash was floating in the air from one of the fires, which he estimated is about 50 kilometres away. They poked through the person's home looking for remnants of anything - his wheelchair, for example, but found nothing.

"That's very bad", resident Nick Hinman said when a deputy sheriff warned him that the driving winds could shift the wildfires toward the town where 11,000 people live.

Also from last night, here is video of the woods burning in the Nuns Fire on Mt. Vedeer Road, on the Napa side of the ridge where the fire began early Monday. Some 4,000 people are battling the fires, including crews from Nevada and the U.S. Forest Service.

Pacific Gas & Electric said more than 94,000 customers were without power as of Tuesday morning, and gas service was shut off to 30,000 customers. In Santa Rosa, which saw neighborhoods and swaths of land overrun by fire, a curfew remains in effect from 6:45 p.m.to 7:15 a.m. They're safe - but as seen in photos McCallister shared on Facebook, fire destroyed their house.

McCallister tells NPR's Morning Edition that she posted the images in part because it has been hard to find details about damage in specific neighborhoods. "There were times at night when my street was like a freeway", Hammar said. "And so I wanted all my neighbors that know me on Facebook to see what happened, and what was gone and what wasn't gone so that they have some kind of idea what to do next". Larson said he wished he had grabbed the gun as he left.
