Lake County Residents Evacuated as Winds Fuel Fast-Moving Fire
LAKE COUNTY -- Residents rushed to the edge of the evacuation zone of the Pawnee Fire in Lake County Sunday, everyone hoping for news about their homes. "When we saw the fire encroaching on us, time to go," said Valeria House of Clearlake Oaks. FOX40 double checked and her home was still standing. But whipped by gusty winds and low humidity, the fire scalped an entire ridgeline behind House's Clearlake Oaks neighborhood in just a few hours.
