The Kincade fire broke out the same day that Pacific Gas & Electric started another round of intentional power shutoffs to prevent its equipment from sparking wildfires. The company says it’s burning near the outage footprint in Sonoma County.

The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department called this a ” fast moving fire” which burned up to 5,000 acres in just three hours after it erupted.
