Fast moving wildfires are raging across Northern California, fueled by parched lands and high winds, prompting evacuations and sending ash spewing over a wide area of the region. More than 1,200 people have been fighting the so-called County Fire, around 75 miles northeast of San Francisco, which broke out on Saturday. It has blazed through around 32,500 acres (13,150 hectares) and was 2 percent contained as of Sunday evening, officials said. Residents in some rural areas of Yolo County were ordered to leave their homes as the flames advanced, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or Cal Fire. A Cal Fire statement reads: “Firefighters have worked throughout the day to establish control lines. Fire weather conditions remain critical. Extreme fire behavior has been observed. Shifting winds have created numerous active portions of the fire that have the potential to increase fire spread.” Photos posted on social media show an eerie orange sky over the streets of San Francisco. Meanwhile, the so-called Pawnee Fire, which started more than a week ago, continues to burn in Lake County near the Mendocino National Forest, 70 miles northwest of Sacramento. — Reuters contributed to this report.
