California fires death total reaches 40The death toll in the Northern California wildfires hit 40 as firefighters entered the second week of attempting to douse multiple blazes and residents returned to find nothing left to salvage from their homes.

On Saturday night, Sonoma County announced that its coroner had confirmed two more deaths, bringing the death toll there to 22.

Sixteen fires have scorched 214,000 acres, forced the evacuation of 100,000 people and destroyed about 5,700 structures, Cal Fire said Saturday.

That includes several thousand homes, including in the wine country of Napa.

"You realize, you don't put your boots on and your gloves on and go sift through stuff. There's nothing to sift through," Janice Mathis told KOVR-TV. "The first thing we think of is we're fortunate."

She owned a three-bedroom home with her husband Bill.
