Kincade Fire: homes flaming up to 2,000 San Francisco
Early Thursday a rapid-fire fueled by strong winds struck the northeast of Sonoma County with a fire of more than 10,000 hectares and prompted the relocation of up to 2,000 people, including the whole city of Geyserville. While it was not immediately known the explanation for the blaze, representatives with Pacific Gas and Electric Co. said that high voltage power lines–the kind of systems which sparked the destructive Camp Fire last year–were running at the moment when the fire broke out. Before irrigation hit, they shut down distribution lines that supply customer power in the area.
CBS San Francisco confirms the extreme conditions encountered by firemen on Early Thursday have already been identified by Scott McLean, Cal Fire spokesperson. "Surely the wind pushes the fire," he said. The burning occurred two years after a series of deadly blaze drowned through the same place, killing a maximum of 44 civilians. "They (the firefighters), certainly have a war at their feet."
He destroyed her Santa Rosa rental house during one of these fires and fled the blaze again on the morning of Thursday as Mary's asthma wakened her at 2:30 a.m. They still had their power as they brought their cats, clothing and emergency kits they had purchased at the last burn.
Mary Ceglarski-Sherwin said to the Santa Rosa press democrat, "Okay, as soon as we got out there, we could feel the heat and see the haze," and on Wednesday, in an attempt to keep the Electric power from the foothills in the northeast, the Pacific Gas & Electric Co. service provider started rolling black-outs extending from Sierra footbridges to parts of San Francisco Bay Area.
Blackouts in 15 counties threatened a half-million residents–or almost 180,000 consumers–and PG&E cautioned of the possibility of a second round of breakdowns in the weekend as winds are expected to return.
South California is expected to hit hot and dry Santa Ana winds on Thursday and Southern California Edison advised that it could blackout about 308,000 residents–about 750,000 based on projected wind speeds. The utilities said that the careful blackouts were designed to keep winds from trees toppling and tumbling down, causing wildfires, at 60 mph (97 kph) or more. In the meantime, a wind-powerful brush blaze throughout southern California called Old Water Blaze burned at a density of 0.50 to 100 hectares early Thursday, says CBS Los Angeles. The fire station had "significant capacity" for large growth as the winds of Santa Ana started to recover by a forest spokeswoman for the National Forest of San Bernardino. For north portions of San Bernardino evacuation was ordered.
Thursday morning power was shut down to thousands of residents across the Southern part of California with thousands of more warnings that they were prepared for a further planned power outage throughout Southern California.

Man accused of shooting a cook in restaurant for telling him to wear a mask in Aurora
Authorities said that a man was arrested for shooting a Waffle House employee because he was asked to wear a mask inside the restaurant by the employee.
Kelvin Watson, 27, was arrested by the Aurora Police on a charge of first-degree on Monday.
According to the arrest affidavit, Watson came after midnight on Thursday in the restaurant, and the waitress asked her to wear a mask to get served. The restaurant was only offering carry-out service.
Then Watson returned with a mask in hands but did not put it on, and when he was again asked to wear the mask, he put a small gun on the counter and told the cook that he could "blow your brains out," said a witness in the affidavit.
The following night, Watson stepped in the restaurant and did not wear a mask again, and when he was again told that he would not be served, then he slapped the cook in the face. Then he shot the cook in the chest or abdomen outside of the restaurant as the cook ran to getaway. The cook was released on Friday afternoon from the hospital.
"We are deeply saddened and regret that this senseless act of violence occurred," Waffle House spokesperson Njeri Boss said.

Virtual travel: “View from My Window” makes you travel the world in quarantine
Barbara Duriau had created a Facebook Page- View from My Window. This virtual platform allows millions of people to treat their eyes by viewing beautiful travel pictures.
Duriau was keen to know about the circumstances and reality across the world. She is a freelance graphic designer from Amsterdam, and in late March, she posted a picture showing the view from her window. When the lockdown started, she realized that everyone is stuck with the same view.
By a month after she created this page, more than two million people joined the page. This page has brought out stories of various people, and people share more than just their view.
Sarah Hill from Arrowbear Lake posted that she finds it interesting to look at pictures posted by others as she has travelled internationally with her husband. In mid-April, she posted a snowy landscape picture. Hill explained she wanted to post this as many would find this unique and would not expect to see in Southern California; she wanted to share her perspective from that little part of the world. Hill said her post got comments from individuals in Michigan right to Austria, and she's not the only one. Each upload receives uncountable comments from individuals everywhere throughout the world, sharing expressions of inspiration and support.
The creator, Duriau, expressed her will to publish a book with the pictures from this Facebook group, and she would donate the earnings for a social cause.
