Wildfire Updates: 10-11-17

The California wildfires are spreading fast, and they’re pretty large fires. High winds last night through this morning didn’t help at all, they’re only aiding the fire in its growth. At the moment, there are 17 separate wildfires burning in the state, with the majority of them being here in Northern California.
