More than a thousand firefighters try to control the flames, assisted by extinguishing helicopters, bulldozers and other heavy equipment. People were also evacuated in other areas and the electricity turned off.

Vineyards

The wine region is a tourist attraction in the western United States. Some (normally) busy, public vineyards were also reduced to ashes.

The US state of California has been battling wildfires for months. Five of the six most destructive fires in state history are still not out, according to firefighters.

Air quality

More than 18,000 firefighters are fighting 27 major wildfires across California. Air quality is affected in nearly half of the huge state. The wind in Northern California is expected to weaken somewhat, but temperatures will remain high for the time being. In the capital Sacramento, the mercury can reach 37 degrees.
