Wildfires Burning Across California

posted by RJ Johnson - @rickerthewriter -

About a dozen fires are burning across California, as scorching temperatures and dry conditions continue to fuel the flames.  The Holiday Fire in Goleta is now 80-percent contained.  

Officials in Santa Barbara County say the fire has destroyed about 20 structures and caused over 2,000 people to be evacuated.  Meanwhile a brush fire has broken out in the hills above Burbank, forcing mandatory evacuations.  Elsewhere in Southern California, fires continue to burn in San Diego County, the San Bernardino Mountains and in the Cajon Pass.  

In Northern California, authorities say a person has died from a wildfire raging near the Oregon border.  The 21,000-acre Klamathon Fire has destroyed at least a dozen buildings and is only five percent contained.  

The largest fire in the state is the County Fire, which has burned nearly 90,000-acres in Napa and Yolo counties near Sacramento.  It's currently 48-percent contained.
