Approximately 7,400 firefighters are still working to put out the fires burning throughout California as of Sunday morning according to CAL FIRE.

The Camp Fire and Woolsey Fire have burned more than 246,449 acres and destroyed about 13,916 structures.

A Red Flag Warning went into effect in Northern California due to gust northeast wind and low humidity.

CAL FIRE said there will be light winds Sunday but locally gusty northeast to east winds will result in critical fire weather conditions.

The fire agency said poor air quality form the smoke will continue until Tuesday.

In Southern California, CAL FIRE said there is a more quiet weather pattern, with cooler weather and a chance of rain during the second half of the week.
