2 New California Wildfires Burn Nearly 10,000 Acres in A Day, Force Evacuations

California Wildfires

Two new wildfires grew by nearly 10,000 acres in a day in California, where more than 3.6 million acres have burned this year.Fueled by dry conditions and high winds, the Zogg Fire in Shasta County and the Glass Fire further south in Napa County had torched 7,000 and 2,500 acres, respectively, by Sunday night after starting earlier in the day.

The Glass Fire tore through vineyards and structures Sunday evening, roaring over hills and jumping across both the Silverado Trail and the Lodi River, despite fire crews efforts to contain it, according to CNN affiliate KPIX.

"It's a cremation," Craig Battuello, whose family has raised grapes in St. Helena for more than a century, told the station.

There have been more than 8,100 wildfires in the state this year and firefighters continue to fight 25 major blazes, CalFire said in a news release Sunday.....  (TASNIM)
