Golf Course Fire in Grand County is 100 percent contained

The Pawnee Fire burns Tuesday near Clearlake California

Evacuations have been called with a wildfire burning out of control in Northern California, sending a smoke plume almost 75 miles south into the San Francisco Bay Area.

The Bay Area's anthropomorphized Karl the Fog can't claim solo credit for this mashup: The wildfires in Lake and Yolo counties are filling the skies with plumes of ash and smoke.

On Sunday morning, the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management tweeted a warning for city residents, announcing the air quality in the city had changed to "moderate", and that older adults, children, or people with heart or lung disease "should consider reducing prolonged/heavy exertion". In comparison, a deadly wildfire that destroyed whole neighbourhoods in Sonoma County past year burned 57 square miles (147 square kilometres).

Wildfires have burned through almost 2.5 million acres (1 million hectares) in the United States as of June 29, well above the average of about 2 million acres for the same calendar period over the last 10 years, according to the National Interagency Fire Center, a monitoring group. There have been no injuries reported.

Just to the northwest, the Pawnee Fire had burned almost 14,000 acres as of Saturday evening and was 73 percent contained. Agencies from the Bay Area and from as far away as San Diego, Modoc and Mendocino counties have sent firefighters to the area, Anthony said.

In early July 2017, a 2,000-acre fire swept through an area southwest of Winters, also forcing evacuations and road closures before it could be contained.

This is an advisory evacuation notice for residents South of Highway 20 between Morgan Valley Road and State Highway 16.

An evacuation center has been established at Rumsey Grange Hall.

Multiple crews from Grand Lake Fire, East Grand Fire, Hot Sulphur Springs, EMS and the Sheriff's Office all responded to the fire.

Twitter goes berserk as Spain are knocked out of the World Cup
The veteran Barcelona midfielder came off the bench and nearly won the game with an 85th-minute shot well saved by Akinfeev. The game would go to penalties, with Spain unable to create any real chances of note for the remainder of the game.

"What's unusual about this fire is really just the intensity of the fire at this particular point in the summer", Anthony said.

Officials believe the fire may have been caused by reckless behavior. The fire grew to 22,000 acres overnight after starting Saturday afternooon at roughly 16,000 acres.

"Overall, this is the new normal for us". "I've never seen a fire like that up close and it's an intense feeling". "The fires seem to be getting larger and more damaging across the landscape".

Cal Fire says strong winds, high temperatures and low humidity are fueling the blaze.

The so-called County Fire, which broke out Saturday afternoon in rural Yolo County, west of Sacramento, has already blackened more than 80 square kilometres of grass, brush and dense scrub oak.

Wildfires have raged through northern California counties over the last week.

"Firefighters have worked throughout the day to establish control lines".

About 570 homes are evacuated near a 2.4 square mile (6.2 square kilometer) fire that started Friday near Florissant.

Joergensen has been living in the country illegally, the document says, and federal immigration officials have requested that they be allowed to take custody of him if he is released from jail.
