Evacuations Ordered As Winds Fuel Yolo County Wildfire

GUINDA, Calif. (AP) – Evacuations have been ordered as dry, hot winds fuel a wildfire burning out of control in Yolo County, sending a stream of smoke some 75 miles south into the San Francisco Bay Area. Officials say Sunday that the blaze in Yolo County has charred more than 25 square miles of dry brush and is threatening structures in ranch land northwest of Sacramento. No injuries are reported.It’s one of two major wildfires in the northern part of the state, where temperatures are soaring and winds are relentless. A blaze burning for several days in Lake County jumped containment lines Saturday, prompting additional evacuation orders. That fire is more than 70 percent contained after charring about 22 square miles of brush.
