In all, 17 large fires still burned across the northern part of the state, with more than 9,000 firefighters attacking the flames using air tankers, helicopters and more than 1,000 fire engines.

Firefighters had gained ground on the blazes but high winds are expected through Saturday night, leading to a red flag warning in the North and East Bay.

Tens of thousands of people remained out of their homes and more were evacuated Tuesday afternoon in northern Sonoma County and Napa County as the out-of-control firestorms have destroyed more than 2,000 structures and threaten many more.

The City of Santa Rosa Fire Department, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors, Cal Fire, the Governor's Office of Emergency Services and the City of Santa Rosa will participate in the briefing and the meeting.

Video was released of body camera footage on the first night of the fire, showing an unnamed deputy braving wild flames and thick smoke to clear out a community already being devoured by the flames. "They are making headway", he said.

Mandatory evacuations have been ordered for all residents living in the Sping Valley ane New Long Valley area.

"The devastation is enormous", Giordano said.

"There is a sun that's going to set".

"We have found bodies almost completely intact, and we have found bodies that were nothing more than ash and bones", said the sheriff.

Cal Fire meanwhile said that strong winds could spark new fires.

Firefighters reported that they had made progress in combating the fires and had begun marking containment lines around the perimeter of some of the blazes.
