Blazes in Lake County and the Sierra Foothills have displaced thousands, while vintners are coping with the threat to harvest.
Firefighters continue to battle two raging wildfires in Northern
California that have scorched a combined 140,000 acres of land in
multiple counties, destroying more than 1,000 homes and buildings and
dislocating tens of thousands of people. Cool, damp weather and calm
winds in the past 48 hours have helped fire teams in Lake County, just
north of Napa, and Calveras county, in the Sierra Foothills, keep the
infernos largely contained. Continued mild temperatures could further
aid the battle.
