50,000 Residents Ordered To Flee California Wine Country

California firefighters on Saturday cut defensive lines against a wildfire in Sonoma County’s famed wine country.

Reuters reports authorities ordered 50,000 people to evacuate.

The order came ahead of winds that are forecast to pick up at night and spread the flames.

The 25,000-acre Kincade Fire in rugged and steep terrain north of San Francisco was one of two major wildfires burning in California.

The Tick Fire is raging in suburban Los Angeles, where it has charred 4,600 acres.
