Wildfires Rage Through Northern California

Mandatory evacuations as wind fuels the flames.

Wildfires, fanned by high winds and high temperatures, are raging through parts of Northern California and forcing evacuations. “The new normal for us is nearly a year-round fire season,” a Cal-Fire division chief told the LA Times on July 1. “Twenty-two thousand acres in less than 24 hours at the end of June is not a good sign of things that might come.” Here, some photos of the latest blaze, the County Fire, which sparked in Yolo County on June 30 and had spread across 32,500 acres by Sunday night.
