    SANTA ROSA, Calif. — Fires pushed by warm winds and fueled by dry ground swept through California wine country Monday, killing at least 10 people, injuring numerous others, and torching more than 2,000 homes and businesses.

    State fire officials warned that the conditions, particularly winds that at times exceeded 50 miles per hour, would probably exacerbate the fires in the days ahead. At least 14 separate blazes burned in eight Northern California counties, prompting evacuations of more than 20,000 frightened residents, including patients in threatened hospitals.

    “This is really serious; it’s moving fast,” Gov. Jerry Brown (D) said during a news conference in which he declared an emergency in seven counties. “The heat, the lack of humidity and the winds are all driving a very dangerous situation and making it worse. It’s not under control by any means. But we’re on it in the best way we know how.”

    The fires, which whipped up overnight Sunday, added to what has already been a severe fire season in the West. More than 8 million acres have burned in at least four states, raising questions from across the political spectrum about the connection to climate change and forest management practices

    Just horrible. I hope Michele checks back in to let us know that her and her family are at least safe.

    Brother lives in Windsor, sister in Healdsburg, its an inferno. The whole mountain east of Santa Rosa went up, the golf course that just held a PGA event last week is gone, likely Johnny Miller's house with it. Kmart, fire stations, hotels, trailer parks, homes, gas stations, everything in its path gone in hours. Just wait until you see the footage, its like that Oakland fire but worse.

    I dunno'. California has it's occasional earthquakes and yearly fires. The gulf coast has it's occasional hurricanes. The Mississippi River Valley rears up and floods several states from time to time. I live in tornado alley. There just isn't a perfect place to be. I do feel for these people tho, and occasionally for you Aussies when you guys get troubles your way, like that horrific drought you had a few years ago.

    WHere are you at ? Its likely going down as one of the worst in the states history. Blew my mind how fast. I think everyone knew Fountain Grove would go. so not surprised there at all, put houses all in a row where its a ticking time bomb...dont be surprised when the time bomb goes off. But the Coffee Park neighborhood...man...that was just horrible. I lived there though way before the houses and it was just farmland. Used to ride horses there. We found my mother and father in law, they are safe, but had no phones to call anyone. People were evacuated in the middle of the night with literally NO time at all.

    As usual some people would think they know everything, but really, at the end of the day...this was a sheer act of mother nature and a perfect storm.

    Sadly..I KNEW Fountain Grove would eventually would go up in flames. Everyone did.
