A series of fires in five Northern California counties — totaling at least 20,000 acres — that began Sunday night are causing evacuations in Napa and Sonoma Counties. High winds are driving the fires which continue to blaze this morning, destroying homes and businesses, closing major roads and causing the evacuation of thousands of people. Several hospitals have had to shut down. Coming up on Forum, we’ll get an update and we want to hear from you. Have you been evacuated or otherwise affected by the fires?
