California: Kincade Fire has spread to 73,324 acres and is 15 percent contained. Of the 123 structures destroyed, CAL FIRE says 57 are homes. Of the 20 structures damaged, officials say 12 are homes.

Earlier on Sunday, California governor Gavin Christopher Newsom  declared a state of emergency on Sunday after wild fire spread with heavy fires caused heavy winds to force residents to evacuate and cause massive power outages.

The situation is threatening the city of Sonoma’s famous tourist city.

Fire, called Kincade, north of San Francisco spread to 12,000 acres yesterday, with only 10 percent managed by midday yesterday, firefighters said.

The blaze, the most devastating compared to 12 other forest fires across the country, has destroyed dozens of homes and wineries, including the iconic Soda Rock Wine Factory, built in 1869.

We are very sad, the factory owner said in a Facebook message, adding that all staff at the factory were safe.

Kincade Fire, the worst in California this year, started Wednesday and spread fast due to winds blowing 145 kilometers an hour.

Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state-wide emergency yesterday due to strong winds that worsened the fire.

“We put in all the resources available, and coordinated with various agencies as we continued to control the fire.

“It is important for residents in the evacuation zone to monitor the warnings from first responders and teams, and having local and state resources is needed as we deal with fires,” Newsom said.

An estimated 180,000 residents are under mandatory evacuation, including several Santa Rosa provinces and most of Sonoma along the Pacific Ocean. This is the largest transfer,  the Sheriff Office informed.

“Take care of each other,” tweeted Sheriff Sonoma’s office.
