For residents of Santa Rosa, the very idea of returning to "normal" seems far off, especially with the sky still hazy and ashes still dancing in the air.

They were not all arrested for looting, but were arrested for similar activities.

And two people died in the Redwood Fire in Mendocino County, well to the north of the three aforementioned fires.

Michael Estrada, who owns a barber shop in neighboring Marin County but grew up in one of the Santa Rosa neighborhoods hit hard by the blazes, brought his combs, clippers and scissors and displayed his barbering license in case anyone doubted his credentials.

The California Highway Patrol has arrested four people for going through the closed areas.

The fires up-ended business across wine country, forcing evacuations at some of the biggest employers, ranging from a sprawling state center for the disabled to department stores, hotels and wineries, shops and factories.

"We have had officers screamed at, spit at, cursed at", Sloat said. The Commission also told the company to "preserve all evidence with respect to the Northern California wildfires".

A woman was arrested after she stole credit cards and checkbooks from wildfire evacuees, police said. It did not say whether they may have caused or contributed to the fire.

"We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the thousands of firefighters and first responders who are working around the clock to contain and extinguish the wildfires".

As a result, the chance of wildfires has increased greatly.

But the wood frames of the still-under-construction houses were intact, with just one needing a few pieces of wood replaced. In 1991, it was 13 percent; in 2017, it was 57 percent, Jones said. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris of California wrote the Federal Communications Commission to express concern that the federal government has yet to adopt rules that would require wireless carriers to more precisely target neighborhoods with orders to evacuate.

Montana also struggled to pay for firefighting this year, with costs approaching $400 million by late September. Half of the Redwood Valley fire was extinguished by Monday.

The man told investigators that he started to fire to keep himself warm, Giordano said. "We're scared. When you see the fire close to your house, you're scared".

A prison inmate doubling as a volunteer firefighter suffered smoke inhalation on Tuesday while battling a blaze nicknamed "The Bear Fire", fire officials in California confirmed.

The inmate program was originally put in place in the 1940s to help maintain roadways.

Outside Sonoma, vintner Steve Larson pleaded with officials Monday to open one road so his workers could harvest, even as helicopters dropped water on the countryside nearby.

"For some people getting back to a normal routine of any kind is really, really grounding", explained Dr. Mandel.

And those who must rebuild from nothing are in for a changed life. When that happens, everyone involved negotiates a cost-sharing deal, sometimes leading to disputes.
