California Wildfire Forces Evacuations – Mary Greeley

Residents were ordered to evacuate in a rural area of Northern California as a wildfire burned out of control and sent smoke into the Bay Area some 75 miles away. The fast-moving blaze that broke out Saturday in western Yolo County has charred at least 32,500 acres — nearly 51 square miles — of dry brush and threatened more than 100 structures in ranchland northwest of Sacramento. No injuries were reported, and the exact number of people evacuated was unclear. Cal Fire said Sunday night that the fire was 2 percent contained.
