  • Clayton Fire's sweep leaves widespread devastation in Lower Lake

    Fire officials said on Monday, Aug. 15, 2016, that it could be a "matter of several days" before evacuations are lifted in some areas destroyed by the Clayton Fire in Lake County. The fire, consuming 3,000 acres and only 5 percent contained on Monday, has destroyed scores of homes, and firefighters have been unable to reach some remote stretches touched by the blaze because of safety concerns.
