Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued the following statement on the wildfires burning in California:

“California’s wine country, one of the state’s most beautiful regions, is under attack. Hundreds of homes have burned in the Sierra Nevada foothills, and another major fire is raging in Orange County, threatening thousands of homes there.

“With 14 fires burning throughout the state, entire neighborhoods incinerated, 15 killed and 150 missing, I implore everyone to follow evacuation orders and all instructions from state and local officials. We must do everything we can to save lives.

“My heart and thoughts are with all of those affected by these fires. I will be sending my staff to evacuation centers to help people with any arrangements they need to make, and we’ll do all we can to help these communities get back on their feet.”
