The Lake County Sheriff's Office issued mandatory evacuation notices for Spring Valley and areas north of Highway 20.

In Tehama County, there still isn't a county on how many homes and businesses were destroyed by the Stoll Fire, which broke out about 1 p.m. Saturday on the western edge of Red Bluff. By 7:20 a.m. Sunday it had burned 3,000 acres and was 5 percent contained. A wildfire that was not contained grew to 21 square kilometres and destroyed at least 22 homes and buildings, the agency reported.

Firefighters also prioritized keeping the burn back from major roads but weren't consistently successful and they had to fight the fire on both sides of the main thoroughfare, County Road 221, much of the day.

Fire Battalion Chief Jonathan Cox said more than 230 firefighters were battling the Lake County fire in a rugged area that made it hard to get equipment close the blaze.

A second fire off State Route 36E near Paynes Creek, which started around 11:30 a.m. Saturday, caused evacuations to Ponderosa Sky Ranch, Paynes Creek Road and Plum Creek Road, according to Cal Fire.

Paul Lowenthal, assistant fire marshal for the Santa Rosa Fire Department, told the San Francisco Chronicle the changes in wind direction caused the fire to spread in multiple directions.

The Pawnee fire was reported after 5 p.m. and was threatening the Spring Valley Lakes subdivision east of Clearlake Oaks. It is one of several fires burning in California now, with parts of the state on high alert on Sunday.

"This is one of four large fires burning in Northern California". The latest evacuation information can be found here. Evacuations have been ordered and a number of roads in the area are closed.

The evacuation center is located at Lower Lake High School 9430 Lake Street, Lower Lake, CA. Officials say to please remember your pets, personal belongings, computers, prescriptions, photos, paperwork, and phones if time allows. The Red Cross is gearing up to handle up to 300 evacuees. Those who stayed were advised to limit water use so firefighters can battle the flames. Resources dispatched to the disaster include firefighters on the ground, bulldozers and air tankers.

"What's happened with the more warming climate is we get low humidity and higher winds and then when we get a fire that's worse than it's been in those 50 years", Steele said.
