California is burning :(

How the deadly Tubbs Fire blitzed Santa Rosa, overwhelming residents and firefighters

The winds were so fierce as a storm of fires kicked off in Wine Country that one of furniture-maker Paul Block’s special wine-barrel chairs — all 50 pounds of it — flew off his shop’s rooftop display in Calistoga. When he spotted flames after 9 p.m. Sunday, he was scared.

Fifteen miles to the west, on the north edge of Santa Rosa, most residents were heading to bed. They had no idea that, within a few hours, the inferno now branded the Tubbs Fire would race through canyons and over hills, cross a county line, jump a freeway, devour 550 homes and 21 businesses, and kill at least 11 people.

Full Story

Fire's pretty much running amok, one fire is put down and three more pop up due to winds and embers. More and more areas/communities are being flagged for evacuation.

There was another smaller fire in southern california very close to my gf's house. It was looking like she and her family might have to evacuate but it looks like they've got it contained now. Still on Monday when it was blazing out of control you could see a ton of smoke and ash in the air. It smelled awful and there was a coating of ash on all the cars.

Hope they get the one up north under control soon.

It hard to stay on top of it when the winds look to be fairly strong over the next few days, and no real chance of rain.

They're trying, but the wind carrying embers is creating fires quicker than they can put down.

I'm about 40miles South of the fires and the smoke is heavy here and we're getting a light downfall of ash, to put the wind issue/problem in perspective.

Probably, but we're really into trees around here, so many wonderful trees. Though these houses burning down are not cottages in the middle of a forest, they're suburbs on the outskirts of a city

Prescribed burns are the most common way to prevent wildfires from turning deadly.
