Marin County firefighters are fighting fires across northern California today, following a week of intense fire activity. A fast moving wildfire in Weed, near Mt Shasta, burned more than 200 homes in a few hours, devastating nearly half of the town. The King Fire near Tahoe tripled in size yesterday, and has forced more than 2000 evacuations. Marin firefighters are currently assisting on both of these devastating fires.
