Fire erupts as Californians hit with 2nd round of blackouts

Fire erupts as Californians hit with 2nd round of blackoutsA Northern California wildfire exploded in size early Thursday amid dangerous winds that prompted the state’s largest utility to impose electrical blackouts to prevent fires. Authorities ordered the entire community of Geyserville to evacuate after the fire in the Sonoma County wine region north of San Francisco grew to more than 15 square miles (39 square kilometers). The Pacific Gas & Electric Co. utility on Wednesday began rolling blackouts stretching from the Sierra foothills in the northeast to portions of the San Francisco Bay Area in a bid to keep the electrical grid from causing fires due to wind that can send power lines toppling, starting fires.
