The heartwarming signs giving hope to those devastated by California's fires
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, science
It's the little things that can mean the most.  Whether it's a sign thanking first responders or a reminder to treat each other kindly, posters going up throughout Northern California's wine country are giving a small dose of support to those reeling from the firestorm. SEE ALSO: How California's firestorm spread so mind-bogglingly fast: From 'Diablo' winds to climate trends The area north of San Francisco has been ravaged by flames, which have killed more than 20 people since Sunday night. One of the fires in Napa County burned more than 40,000 acres. Another nearby fire, the Tubbs Fire in the heart of wine country, killed 11 people, making it the sixth most deadly fire in the state's history, according to state fire officials. At least 3,500 homes and businesses, including wineries, were lost. But despite the bleak numbers and charred landscape, tiny moments of hope and love made it through. Saw this on the way in to work early this morning...much appreciated and a great way to start the day! Thank Y❤️U! #AtlasFire #NapaStrong pic.twitter.com/YgsU70bCL8 — CHP Napa Area (@CHP_Napa) October 11, 2017 Northern California is on fire. We here in Ukiah are safe, but many friends and family of Black Oak have lost everything, and there's sure to be more loss in the coming days. Cal-Fire are doing their best to fight these raging blazes and protect homes and lives, and to them we are immensely grateful. For more information about the fires in Mendocino County, check the Cal-Fire website or the Ukiah Daily Journal Facebook page.
