Seven wildfires in Northern California have spread to more than 400 acres, fueled by strong winds Wednesday. California's Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) and Alameda County Fire said they are responding with fire personnel and helicopters.
Cal Fire said the fires are burning along Byron Highway in a reservoir in the San Joaquin River Delta region. The fires began Wednesday afternoon local time. As of Thursday evening, the fires have been 100% contained, according to the latest report from Cal Fire.
