Kincade Fire Nearly 30 Percent Contained, California Officials Say
The 76,825-acre Kincade Fire in Sonoma County was reportedly 30 percent contained on Wednesday, October 30. More than 5,000 fire personnel from 93 crews have been dispatched to the blaze.
The fire, which started October 23, was one of a series of wildfires that have ravaged parts of California in recent weeks and prompted red flag warnings across much of the state.
“The eastern part of the fire was active overnight, but firefighters continued to make forward progress, as a whole. Access to the northern part of the fire remains challenging because of steep terrain and narrow roads. A Red Flag warning continues through this afternoon. Firefighters will continue to mitigate structure threats and find opportunities to construct more control lines,” CAL FIRE reported on Wednesday.
Governor of California Gavin Newsom on Sunday declared a statewide emergency and evacuation warnings remain in place due to the threat of strong winds and low humidity. More than 200,000 people have reportedly been forced from their homes by the Kincade and Easy fires.
