If you are planning an RV trip to Northern California you may want to confim that you destination is not affected by several wind-whipped Northern California wildfires.

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Director Ken Pimlott said an estimated 20,000 people have been evacuated as 14 large fires burn promting a state of emergency while officials estimate at least 1,500 homes and commercial buildings have been destroyed. The fires are burning throughout an eight-county swath of Northern California, including Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties.

At least one person has died, and two others are suffering serious burns from the wildfires north of San Francisco. Other fatalities are expected, according to Pimlott, but damaged areas are difficult to assess as the fires continue to burn.
