California Fires Are Barely Contained And Growing

Sonoma's Kincade fire and the Getty fire in LA are just two of over a dozen fires blazing across the state.

Dozens of fires are burning across California and thousands of people have been evacuated.

Statewide, millions are without power, according to reports at Huffpost.com.

Fifteen major fires were burning from Northern to Southern California as of midday Monday.

The Kincade fire has torn through over 66,000 acres as of early Monday.

This has more than tripled its size thanks to over 100 mph winds that blew through the region.

Kincade is only 5% contained, has destroyed almost 100 buildings, and has 4,000 firefighters battling it.

LA's Getty fire has destroyed eight homes, damaged at least five more and is 0% contained.
