Powerful wildfires fanned by strong winds have ravaged parts of Northern California's wine country, killing at least 23 people.
The remains of fire damaged homes stand after a wildfire moved through the area in Glen Ellen.
All of the new fires started after 10 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET) on Sunday, Cal Fire Director Ken Pimlott said, bringing the total spread of more than 25 fires across the northern half of California to about 73,000 acres at what he called the worst possible time.
