15 dead as wildfires torch California wine countryFirefighters battled wildfires in California’s wine region on Tuesday as the death toll rose to 15 and thousands were left homeless in neighborhoods reduced to ashes. “The homes are gone, they are like dust,” said Jack Dixon, a personal trainer who lives in Santa Rosa, a city of 175,000 in Sonoma County. Dixon told AFP that his own neighborhood was spared when the fire “miraculously” changed direction but many others were not so fortunate.
