    Flames from the County fire burn above Cache Creek Casino Resort's parking lot on Saturday, June 30, 2018, in Capay, Calif.

    Take a look at wildfires in the south of the US state of California in Sputnik's gallery.

    Californian authorities have issued red flag weather warnings and mandatory evacuation orders after a series of wildfires fanned by high winds and hot temperatures ripped through thousands of acres. The latest blaze, the County Fire sparked in Yolo County on June 30, had by July 1 afternoon spread across 22,000 acres (9,000 hectares) with zero percent containment, according to Cal Fire.
