    They start investigating every wildfire the day it starts, and always have.

    Cause of raging Northern California fires remains under investigation


    Los Angeles Times
    -15 hours ago


    California fires coverage: Fires in Sonoma and Napa counties grow


    OCT. 12, 2017, 8:15 A.M.


    At least 23 people have died in Northern California fires that continue to ravage multiple counties, while the Anaheim Hills fire in Southern California has scorched between 5,000 to 6,000 acres.

    What you need to know:

    • Fire officials reported 23 fire-related deaths as of Thursday morning. Thirteen people died in Sonoma County, six in Mendocino County, two in Napa County and two in Yuba County. Local hospitals are treating others for injuries.
    • At least 3,500 structures have been destroyed in more than 15 Northern California fires, covering collectively more than 160,000 acres.
    • Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties.
    • The Canyon 2 fire in Anaheim Hills has burned 9,200 acres, destroyed or damaged about 60 structures and injured one person. It was 60% contained as of Thursday morning and all evacuation orders were lifted.

    A Pacific Gas and Electric spokesman said Wednesday that it’s too early to know if the utility's power lines or transformers sparked any of the fires raging in Sonoma and Napa counties.

    The utility’s priority right now is restoring electricity, said Jason King, spokesman for the San Francisco-based utility.


    At least 40,000 customers are without power in the Santa Rosa area, he said.


    Strong winds late Sunday and early Monday affected the utility’s electrical lines across the North Bay, the company said in a statement.


    “In some cases we have found instances of wires down, broken poles and impacted infrastructure.

    Where those have occurred, we have reported them to our state utility regulator and Cal Fire,” the statement read.


    Any electrical facilities in Sonoma County are owned by the utility, unless the facilities are on private property, King said.


    Sonoma County spokeswoman Hannah Euser said she had no information about damage to any PG&E’s infrastructure.


    Daniel Berlant, assistant deputy director at the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said power lines, campfires and equipment use are common causes of fires,
    but investigators don’t know what sparked the blazes burning throughout Northern California.


    “We have investigators spread out across all the fires,” Berlant said, adding that such investigations take at least several days.

    Death toll from California fires jumps to at least 34; 5,700 structures destroyed

    Los Angeles Times · 5 mins ago

    . . . Among the 13 people identified by Mendocino, Sonoma and Napa county officials, the youngest victim was 14 , the oldest 100.
    “The bulk of them are in their 70s and 80s, so there is that commonality,” Giordano told reporters at a news briefing.
    A majority were found inside their homes, unable to escape as the fire bore down. At least one was in a wheelchair. Another was lying next to a vehicle. The trend highlights a risk for elderly people when a natural disaster strikes: Health problems may limit mobility. They may no longer drive, and often live in areas with unreliable cellphone service . . .
