Thousands Flee California Fire

California Gov. Jerry Brown expanded a state of emergency Sunday morning to the state’s Lake and Napa Counties after a wildfire charred more than 60 square miles in 12 hours, prompting thousands to flee their homes.

Brown said the declaration will expedite debris removal and waive fees to people who need to replace official documents lost in the fire, according to The Associated Press. T

The blaze, which erupted Saturday afternoon about 100 miles north of San Francisco, has destroyed an unconfirmed number of homes and other buildings and damaged highways and other infrastructure.
