Dead In California Wildfires

Dead In California Wildfires

California's fire chief says at least 1,500 homes and commercial buildings have been destroyed in wildfires that have ripped through the state's wine country.

Fire officials said large animals could also be taken to the Orange County Fairgrounds. "They need to be able to get in there, they need to be able to provide for the safety of themselves and the other people fighting the fire, and having people in the evacuation zone just makes it more hard for us to do our jobs".

The fire, which spread quickly due to Monday's gusty winds, had scorched about 7,500 acres Anaheim Fire Department Sgt. Daron Wyatt said Tuesday.

Firefighters are battling several wind-whipped fires that forced evacuations of rural neighborhoods in Northern California. "It's not under control by any means".

The firehas darkened the skies at Disneyland, Anaheim.

Weather conditions are favorable with a shift in winds from hot, dry Santa Anas to cooler, more moist ocean breezes.

The Anaheim Hills Community Center, East Anaheim Community Center, Downtown Anaheim Community Center and Anaheim Downtown Youth Center are functioning as evacuation sites, according to the interactive map.

Almost 1,000 homes may be threatened by the fire, the Los Angeles times reported.

The 241 Toll Road remains closed until further notice, and dozens of schools in the area remain closed Tuesday.

The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/2xsJF0k) that the library, main office and portable classrooms of Cardinal Newman High School in Santa Rosa are burned.

The fire front east of Los Angeles is presently zero per cent contained. Firefighters, he said, worked hard to protect his house and the others.

A California forest fire has spread to the point that it is imperiling high school athletics at a pair of schools. It raced up a ridge and hit tract homes at the top of a hill.
