2012 Ponderosa Wildfire Rages in North California: Gov Jerry Brown Calls State of Emergency

California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency in three northern California counties on Wednesday (August 22) after a wildfire that has already destroyed 50 buildings advanced with 75-foot flames on a tiny community at the doorstep of a national park. Firefighters scrambled to head off the so-called Ponderosa Fire, which had already scorched 24000 acres (9700 hectares), before it reached the outskirts of Mineral, a community of less than 200 people just south of Lassen National Volcanic Park.
