One person had been killed and more than 400 homes and business were destroyed, according authorities. In fact, more than 9,000 structures were threatened. Four firefighters suffered second degree burns while fighting the blaze and were in stable condition. “Evacuations are widespread throughout the area,” CalFire’s chief public information officer Daniel Berlant communicated to the media. “We don’t keep a strict count of the number of people seen in the evacuation centers, but several hundred registered in our two shelters open last night,” Red Cross spokeswoman Kathleen Maclay said Sunday. Another active fire is at about 150 miles. At this time about dozen active fires are burning in California, stimulated by dry conditions.
