North Bay Wildfires By the Numbers


Redwood Fire - North Bay Fire By the Numbers

The California wine country fires started burning on October 8, 2017, but the impact will be felt for years to come. The Sonoma County area has faced multiple wildfires, with Santa Rosa being most affected. These six fires have burned hundreds of thousands of acres. Fifty people have died, with thousands more injured or displaced by the fires.

Here is a look at each of the fires.
