Information about Northern California wildfires
In early October 2017, a series of wildfires started burning across the state of California. They broke out throughout Napa, Lake, Sonoma, Mendocino, Butte, and Solano counties during severe fire weather conditions effectively leading to a major red flag warning from much of the Northern California area. Seventeen separate wildfires have been reported during this time.
Due to the extreme conditions, shortly after the fires ignited they rapidly grew to become massive, full-scale incidents spanning from 1,000 acres to well over 20,000 acres each within a single day. By October 12, 191,437 acres in California were burning, and an estimated 3,500 structures were destroyed. In addition, the Northern California fires have killed at least 31 people and hospitalized at least 100, making the week of October 8, 2017 the deadliest week of wildfires in California history.
