– Clearlake (Lake County, 95422)
NOTE: This has NOT yet been declared a FEMA Major Disaster.
The Cache Fire has blackened about 80 acres in Lake County and is 20% contained, according to a Cal Fire update issued Wednesday evening.
Several dozen homes were destroyed and one civilian injured in a Northern California wildfire that erupted Wednesday afternoon in the southeast area of Clearlake, a small city of 15,000 just north of the Bay Area.
“Hopefully we don’t find any things worse than that,” Lake County Sheriff Brian Martin said in a video update on Facebook at 5:45 p.m.
Martin noted that Highways 29 and 53 have reopened with many streets still closed.
