Millions of people have been without power for days as fire crews raced to contain two major wind-whipped blazes that have destroyed dozens of homes in California.
About 50,000 people were ordered to flee their homes in Sonoma County, north of San Francisco, as the Kincade Fire spread to cover 25,455 acres (10,300 hectares) after breaking out on Wednesday.
