Sunday Fire Summary, 40 Fatalities, 217,566 Acres, 5,700 Structures Destroyed, 75,000 Evacuated

California Statewide Fire Summary Sunday, October 15, 2017.  Yesterday, nearly 11,000 firefighters beat back the flames and made good progress towards the containment of now 15 large wildfires across California. 217,566 acres have burned in the current 15 large fires, with an estimated 5,700 structures destroyed. Sadly, the death toll has risen to 40 people. As progress has been made on several fronts, many evacuations have been able to be lifted. As of Sunday morning, nearly 75,000 people remain evacuated.

Winds across Northern California have been fairly light this morning and the earlier Red Flag Warnings for the area will be lifted at 8a.m. In Southern California, Red Flag Warnings remain in effect due to gusty winds, low humidity  and high fire danger. The winds are likely to continue throughout the day. Residents are urged to be prepared for wildfires now. Learn more by visiting  www.ReadyForWildfire.org.

    Trying to profit off of tragedy is kinda sad. Yes, I hope we do well and we deserve to but this has been horrific for them and I hope Napa-Sonoma recovers better than ever.

      Judging by how swift the Butte Fire victims recovery is taking place, you may be overzealous in your prognostication for the wine country timeline.
