CLEARLAKE OAKS, Calif. (AP) – A wind-driven fire racing across dry brush in a largely rural area of Lake County has destroyed 12 buildings and threatened hundreds of others. State fire officials say the Pawnee Fire broke out near the community of Clearlake Oaks on Saturday evening and was burning out of control Sunday. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Battalion Chief Jonathan Cox says 600 homes have been evacuated. He says cause of the fire isn’t immediately known and there’s no estimate on when it might be contained.
