More than just wine country is burning in California

Redwood Valley residents sort through donations and supplies at McCarty’s Bar, which turned into an evacuation center in Redwood Valley, Calif., Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017. Mendocino County is 70 miles north of California’s fabled wine country now under siege from wildfires but a world away in mood, attitude and, especially, prominence. That helps explain why some residents feel ignored as they deal with catastrophic wildfires, just like their better-known neighbors to the south. (AP Photo/Paul Elias)
