Evacuations as wildfire roars through California wine country

Evacuations as wildfire roars through California wine countryThe Kincade fire in a rural area of Sonoma County kicked up Wednesday night, quickly growing from a blaze of a few hundred acres into an uncontained 10,000-acre (4,000-hectare) inferno, California fire and law enforcement officials said. Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for the community of Geyserville and nearby vineyards after the fire, which started in a mountainous area, quickly spread, crossing a highway and moving toward homes, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said. “If you’re in Geyserville, leave now,” the sheriff’s office advised, citing an extraordinary threat to life and property.
