Yolo County Fire Grows with Little Containment

Yolo County Fire Grows with Little Containment

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said one blaze that ignited on Saturday in western Yolo County spread over the weekend to neighbouring Napa County.

The County Fire was first reported shortly after 2:10 p.m.in Rumsey Canyon, in the area of Highway 16 and County Road 63.

As of 3:10 p.m. Cal Fire had no new details on County Fire, with the blaze holding at 44,500 acres and 3 percent contained.

In early July 2017, a 2,000-acre fire swept through an area southwest of Winters, also forcing evacuations and road closures before it could be contained.

About 1,226 personnel have been sent to battle the grueling fire, but no structures have been destroyed and there have not been reports of injuries.

A second wildfire is also burning to the northwest of the County Fire. It's now at 32,500 acres burned.

"They just said, 'You're going to have to evacuate, ' and I said 'No I am not, ' and he said 'Sir, I think you are, '" he said.

First, instead of an all-glass back that could've enabled wireless charging, Google is using a glass and metal back. This shows that Google too has embraced the notched display design like the other smartphone OEMs this year.

Joergensen, who reported the wildfire, said it started about 20 ft (six meters) away from the fire pit Wednesday and he tried to put it out, an arrest affidavit says. The homes that are threatened about 80 miles (129 kilometres) southeast of Salt Lake City are not primary residences.

Hot winds fueling a massive wildfire that prompted evacuations in rural Northern California have pushed the flames into a neighboring county. Smoke from the fire has blanketed skies over San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma and San Mateo counties.

Mandatory evacuations are in effect for anyone who lives off of Highway 128 between Monticello Dam and Pleasant Valley Road as well as people south of County Road 23, and east of Berryessa Knoxville Road.

Highway 20 has remained closed for much of the day, Sunday, at the junction of State Route 53 in Lake County.

"It jumped a line, burned 100 acres", McLean said.

"It's a very challenging fire, I'll be honest with you, with all the wind changes", Shane Greer, an incident commander with the Rocky Mountain Incident Management Team, told residents Sunday. Here are where all the current fires are located, along with maps and evacuation updates. The Pawnee Fire may expand beyond containment and continue to move South with current weather conditions.
