Evacuations have been ordered in Northern California as wildfires rage. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Sunday night that there was 2 percent containment. So far, 22 structures have been destroyed, six damaged and another 50 are now threatened.

Red Flag fire conditions didn't help more than 1,000 firefighters battling the 32,500-acre County Fire in Yolo County Sunday.

Smoke and ash from fires burning in the Yolo and Lake counties filled the sky about 75 miles south in the San Francisco Bay Area on Sunday morning, giving the city a foreboding orange filter. "It's a little scary".

The County Fire has continued its sprawl in Yolo County, sending poor air quality into the Sacramento region. "It looks like a movie", she said. "We're seeing fires grow with greater intensity than what historically we've seen", Anthony said.

Kevin Durant likes winning titles, won't leave Warriors
And two other big names in free agency - Oklahoma City's Paul George and Houston's Chris Paul - have chose to stay put. Paul is an all-time great, but he's also 33 years old with a reputation for getting injured ahead of big moments.

The fire that started Saturday spread as strong winds pushed smoke south, dusting cars and homes as far south as San Francisco with a thin layer of gray ash. The smoke was expected to linger through Monday and possibly longer.

The County Fire has rolled over 44,500 acres in the day and a half it has been burning. The fire grew to 22,000 acres overnight after starting Saturday afternooon at roughly 16,000 acres.

People have fled about 570 homes near a 2-square-mile (6-square-kilometre) fire that started Friday west of Colorado Springs. Scorching hot temperatures and gusty winds proved challenging for fire crews.

With massive plumes overhead, hand crews marched to the front lines but not for long as the wind outpaced any human effort of slowing down the County Fire.

None of this would have happened if LeBron James did not agree to come back home and lead the Cavaliers to the promised land. The Cavs are now faced with a roster that has more than $102 million in guaranteed contracts, and little chance to contend.

Previous year was California's deadliest for fires. Savannah Kirtlink told AP, "A lot of friends and family were texting today and saying they were having some PTSD". "I put stuff out after that in the living room, photos and stuff", he said, just in case he has to leave.

Forecasters say the threat of wildfires will diminish in the U.S. Southwest this month but increase in the Northwest and along much of the California coast. Scott McLean, deputy chief of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, told the San Francisco Chronicle that windblown embers are making containment more hard. The fire has been described as "extremely fast-moving". "People need to be prepared". "The fires seem to be getting larger and more damaging across the landscape".

"Usually with a fire, we can chase it". We got right in the middle of it. "The best word I can come up with is hectic".

City manager John Donlevy says the show attracts thousands of people, nearly twice the population of Winters, each year.
