“The air quality is horrible, you can’t really see much at all. It’s way worse than it was yesterday,” said Scorsone. “From what I’m hearing, there’s really no containment with the fires. The front line persons are really just trying to get people evacuated.”

Scorsone said this fire will have a big impact on the wine industry.

The wildfires have killed at least 15 people.
