There have been at least one dozen wildfires active in California over the past month, many stoked by the ferocious winds that buffeted the California coast over the past month. The biggest, the Kincade Fire, incinerated parts of the Wine Country in Sonoma County, and together, the fires have burned through 100,000 acres.
