According to the New York Times;
Fast-moving wildfires raged across several counties in Northern California on Monday, killing at least one person, forcing the evacuation of up to 20,000 people and destroying hundreds of buildings, the authorities said.
Firefighters were battling blazes in eight counties on Monday — Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino, Yuba, Nevada, Calaveras and Butte — officials said.
Wildfires Threaten Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure
While not currently a direct threat, Bleeding Cool is also now reporting;
The fast-moving brush fire is now threatening roughly 1,000 homes in the area. The fire is now affecting Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure. We’re hearing that guests are being taken off of rides and the smoke in the air is getting very bad.
The musicians are being told to stay inside and employees who live in areas where evacuation orders have been given are being allowed to go home to get their things. ‘Face characters’, cast members who wear costumes with their face bare, are being allowed to leave now as well.
Sgt. Daron Wyatt, a spokesman for the Anaheim Fire Department said in an announcement:
You need to be prepared to evacuate and now is the time to do so. Take everything that you can that will sustain you for the next couple of days.
