2017 Wine Country Wildfires
A series of fires in Northern California wine country, most still burning over a week later, have killed 41 people and seriously injured over 100. They have destroyed approximately 220,000 acres and close to 6,000 buildings, including thousands of homes as well as wineries, farms, hotels and restaurants, and retail businesses. Nearly 100,000 people were displaced across Napa, Sonoma, and Lake counties, with many still unable to return home or without homes to return to. These fires are the most destructive in California history, and property and business losses are expected to be in the billions.
