Three Killed As California Forest Fire Intensifies

CALIFORNIA: Firefighters were scrambling early Tuesday to save the Northern California city of Calistoga as one of the state’s fast-growing wildfires approached, compounding the misery of a deadly fire season that has destroyed numerous homes and left parts of California inhaling unhealthy air for weeks.

The Glass Fire — one of two large blazes that began over the weekend — has forced tens of thousands of people to evacuate homes in the wine country of Napa and Sonoma counties, including Calistoga.
All of Calistoga’s roughly 5,000 residents were ordered to evacuate Monday, as officials feared flames could burn the city, about 55 miles north of San Francisco.

Police were going through every street to get residents to leave, CNN affiliate KPIX reported late Monday.


Linda Shaver left her home once and came back, thinking her home wasn’t in danger, only to be told to evacuate again, KPIX reported.
