2017 Wine Country Wildfires
A series of fires in Northern California wine country have killed 43 people and seriously injured over 100. They have destroyed approximately 240,000 acres and close to 9,000 buildings, including thousands of homes as well as wineries, farms, hotels and restaurants, and retail businesses. Nearly 100,000 people have been 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.
