Emergency declared as California fire rages

California’s governor declared a statewide emergency on Sunday as the wind-driven Kincade Fire spread to more than 34,000 acres (14,000 hectares), forcing residents to flee. In Los Angeles, meanwhile the local fire department issued mandatory evacuation orders after a “very dynamic” brush fire broke out west of a major highway, US 405, near The Getty museum. Refugees from the Kincade blaze recalled hasty departures as they waited it out in the safety of a community center in Petaluma, California.
