Crews are battling several fires in Northern California on Sunday that are prompting evacuations.
High temperatures and tinder dry conditions are making it difficult to get a handle on the fires. One is in Mendocino County and two are in the Sierra Foothills.
The King Fire near Pollock Pines in El Dorado County started Saturday. About 100 acres burned and crews only have it about 10 percent contained.
A Cal Fire spokesman says the area has only a few homes and is mostly forest.
A fire near Colfax is about 150 acres. Several homes were evacuated Saturday, shortly after the fire, but those evacuations were lifted Saturday night. Firefighters have that fire 30 percent contained.
Meanwhile crews in Mendocino County are battling a wildfire in the community of Redwood that started Saturday afternoon. Authorities have evacuated about two dozen homes threatened by the fire.
Five structures and about 150 acres have already burned. As of Sunday afternoon, the fire was about 30 percent contained.Sun, 14 Sep 2014 16:47:10 -0700
Chris Wondolowski's goal in the 66th minute drew the San Jose Earthquakes even with the Los Angeles Galaxy for a 1-1 tie in the final California Clasico of the season on Sunday.
Jordan Stewart assisted on the tying score, slotting a pass through a group of Galaxy defenders to find Wondolowski open near the far post.
Omar Gonzalez opened the scoring in the 28th minute on a header off Stefan Ishizaki's corner. The Galaxy (14-5-9) dominated the Earthquakes (6-11-10) in the first half, outshooting them 14-1 overall.
After Jon Busch made a series of diving saves for San Jose, the momentum turned in the Earthquakes' favor when Robbie Keane missed a penalty kick off the post for the Galaxy in the 37th minute.
The rivalry was marked by physical play, resulting in nine yellow cards.Sun, 14 Sep 2014 15:12:18 -0700
Authorities have identified the man killed in a fatal officer-involved shooting in front of a liquor store in Richmond early Sunday morning as 24-year-old Richard Perez.
The incident happened shortly after midnight at the Uncle Sam liquor store on Cutting and Carlson Boulevards following an altercation between Perez and the officer.
Richmond Police Department spokesman Capt. Mark Gagan said that an officer was patroling the neighborhood -- a known problem area for police -- by himself in a patrol car.
The officer stopped at the liquor store and had an interaction with Perez, who police said is known to the department and has previous arrests.
At one point, Perez was sitting down and appeared to be subdued during the interaction, but he later became animated as an argument with the officer ensued.
Gagan told KTVU closed-circuit video captured the scuffle that showed the two men rolling around on the ground for about a minute. According to Gagan, it was when Perez reached for the officer's gun that the officer shot him.
Gagan said that a Shotspotter sensor confirmed that three shots were fired, though it was unclear how many bullets actually struck Perez. There were numerous people watching the fight between the officer and Perez, according to Gagan.
Gagan said officer, who is a six-year veteran on the force, was "surrounded" by people he didn't know during the fight and "feared for his life." The officer shot Perez outside the liquor store, Perez stumbled into liquor store and collapsed.
KTVU had a chance to talk to a couple people who said they were friends of Perez. One man told KTVU Perez was drunk and shouted at the clerk because he wouldn't let Perez buy any more alcohol.
The coroner's van arrived to remove the body shortly before 7 a.m.
Police closed off several blocks in the area with crime scene tape until around 7:30 a.m. and remained on the scene collecting evidence.
The officer involved in the shooting has been placed on paid administrative leave.
The Contra Costa County District Attorney's office and Richmond police are investigating the incident.
