#BREAKING : I just shot this timelapse video showing a huge flareup developing at the #KincadeFire . I was the only reporter allowed this far up Pine Flat Road because I was just returning from the frontlines when the flareup happened. @kron4news pic.twitter.com/eMrcCbPPsy— Amy Larson (@AmyLarson25) October 26, 2019

This happened earlier today in Windsor. Spot fire on a roof got into an attic. This fire fighter ripped tiles off the roof by hand to get at it and put it out. House saved. @nbcbayarea #KincadeFire pic.twitter.com/YhVeh1lBGZ— Jean Elle (@nbcjeanelle) October 28, 2019
More than 4,000 firefighters, 444 fire engines, 30 water tenders, 10 helicopters and 53 dozers have been dispatched to the blaze.
The previously issued Red Flag Warning was lifted in the area this morning. However, San Francisco’s National Weather Service office reports that nearly-critical fire conditions still exist, with 40 to 50 mph winds still possible in the area.
One first responder has been injured by the fire. No deaths have been reported.
