Wildfires are destroying Northern California, and the wine country region is getting hit hardest.

There are more than a dozen fires occurring there as winds are high, humidity is low — and so are resources, officials said.

As of Wednesday morning, there were 17 people killed in the fires, and an estimated 150 people missing. More than 1,500 homes and businesses were destroyed, and fires were still raging at 6:15 a.m. Pacific Time.

People being treated for injuries caused by the wildfires — burns, breathing issues and more — were mostly going to hospitals in Napa and Sonoma counties.
