About 1,500 structures have been destroyed in more than 14 fires across eight Northern California counties, Cal Fire spokeswoman Janet Upton said Monday morning.
The fires began around 10 p.m. Sunday night, she said. “Some of the fires experienced winds in excess of 50 miles per hour.” The winds were not as fierce Monday but a red flag warning is still in place through Tuesday, she said.
"We estimate now the 14 combined fires have burned over 57,000 acres,” she said. The counties affected are Napa, Sonoma, Butte, Mendocino, Yuba, Nevada, Calaveras and Lake, she said.
