Wildfires Rage in California

“Wildfires raced toward populated areas of Northern California's wine country, as dozens of blazes burned in other parts of the state.

Some people just west of Vacaville — a city of about 100,000 residents between San Francisco and Sacramento — were ordered to evacuate as fires burned in the hills.

The fires come during a brutal heat wave. About 45 million people across the West are under an excessive-heat warning or heat advisory.”

Mike Hayes and Meg Wagner report for CNN August 20, 2020.
