California wildfires destroy more than 50 structures

Fourteen wildfires in eight northern California counties had burned more than 57,000 acres in the last 12 hours, said California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire) spokesman Daniel Berlant. No injuries or deaths have been reported so far.

Authorities in Marin and San Francisco counties made the same plea, asking residents who smell smoke not to call 911 unless they see flames.

Napa, Lake and Sonoma counties had seven large fires burning, he said.

Patients from Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health hospitals on Monday were evacuated from Santa Rosa and taken to other nearby hospitals or make-shift hospitals.

Meanwhile, a fire near Calistoga had burned several buildings, sent several people to the hospital to be treated for burns and prompted mandatory evacuations along several roads.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a smoke advisory for Monday.

In southern California, a fast-moving wildfire in Anaheim is forcing some evacuations.

In recent memory, there hasn't been anything like the wildfires now burning in these relatively densely populated areas of the North Bay, and several cities and towns are likely to be assessing damages for weeks to come, and rebuilding for years to come, including Santa Rosa and Glen Ellen.

"Right now with these conditions we can't get ahead of this fire and do anything about the forward progress", Biermann said. Officials said homes were also lost in the community of Kenwood and at a mobile home park off the 101 Freeway. Windy and dry conditions were making it hard for firefighters to battle the blaze.

There was "zero containment" on two of the biggest fires, Cal Fire said in a mid-morning briefing on Monday. Evacuation orders have been issued for about five miles of roads surrounding the blaze, which began as a vegetation fire around 9:20 p.m. on Sunday.

"I'm probably not going to", she said.

In Napa County, Cal Fire says firefighters were battling as many as 10 blazes that forced hundreds of evacuations in the Soda Canyon, Atlas Peak and Patrick Road areas of Napa and in Calistoga. The Crosswalk Church was opened earlier as a evacuation center, but it's at capacity.

What caused the fires is still under investigation.
