(Napa County, CA)  --  P.G.& E. says as many as 114,000 customers are without power in Napa and Sonoma counties.  Strong winds overnight knocked down power lines and may have been responsible for sparking some of wildfires that continue to spread.  

P.G. & E. officials say they are bringing in personnel from around the state to help restore power to those affected.  Some power lines have been deactivated in the fire zones to avoid further problems.  P.G.& E. crews are on standby in some of the affected areas, waiting to get the all-clear from first responders before they can begin working.
