California wildfires in pictures: 7 days of devastation and struggle
This story was updated at 2:30 p.m. Sunday.
With winds dying down, fire officials said Sunday they have apparently "turned a corner" against the wildfires that have devastated California wine country and other parts of the state over the past week. And thousands of people got the all-clear to return home.
At least 41 people have died in the wildfires. The current death toll stems from different fires: 22 dead in Sonoma County, nine dead in Mendocino, six in Napa and four in Yuba. More than 200 people remain missing.
Another 5,700 homes and businesses have been destroyed by the blazes. State fire Deputy Directory Daniel Berlant said collectively this is the deadliest series of simultaneous fires in the state in recorded history. Entire cities have been evacuated. In Calistoga, evacuation orders were lifted for its population of 5,300 people.
