Footage shot on Wednesday showed the extent of the damage to the vineyard’s premises and produce. Local resident Ramon Garcia said he has to look for «a different job» as he lost his as a consequence of the fires. Another local, James Brown, said: «If the wind changes direction we will be trapped,» and added that authorities «haven't done mandatory evacuation yet.» Fifteen separate wildfires raged in Northern California, killing at least 17 people amid 122,000 acres of affected land, and prompting a state of emergency. Fires began on Monday and have left firefighters unable to bring the infernos under control. At least 2,000 properties have been destroyed as a result and over 100 people were treated at hospitals for smoke and burn related injuries alone.
