Also, did anyone die in the Kincade fire?

As of Saturday, the Kincade Fire had destroyed 175 homes across Sonoma County. It's no small toll, but it pales in comparison with the nearly 14, 000 homes lost in the Camp Fire and roughly 5, 000 lost in Wine Country two years ago. And more important, no one died.

The winds caused the fire that began in northern Sonoma County to explode overnight and move swiftly through the day Sunday, prompting evacuations in Santa Rosa, west to Bodega Bay and southeast to Calistoga in Napa County. The Diablo winds swept into Santa Rosa early Sunday.
