At least 10 dead, 1,500 structures lost in Northern California firestorm

Thousands have been evacuated from their homes as a wildfire spreads across Napa Valley. The blaze has already destroyed at least 1500 buildings according to officials.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office reported seven fire-related deaths late Monday. In addition, two died because of the Atlas fire in Napa County, said a CalFire spokesperson. One person died as result of the Redwood Valley fire in Mendocino County.

The vast devastation over just a few hours made this firestorm one of the worst in California history, with Gov. Jerry Brown declaring a state of emergency. Officials said the fires in Northern California have scorched 73,000 acres.
