The authorities in Sonoma County, a wine-making region in the US state of California had received over 100 reports about people missing as a result of wildfires in the region, SFGate newspaper reported, citing the county's spokesman, Scott Alonso, on Tuesday.

The fires started on Monday, prompting California's Governor Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency in the areas hit by the disaster.

Sonoma sheriff Robert Giordano said earlier on Tuesday that at least 10 death had resulted from the wildfires.
Other local media reported that some 100 people had sought medical help due to fire-related injuries and health conditions.

Also, the fire reportedly destroyed around 1,500 buildings and burned some 57,000 acres of land across eight counties in California, with some 20,000 people evacuated across the state.

Following several days of hot temperatures, combined with Sunday night's sudden easterly high winds, at least 14 wildfires are currently burning out of control in the northern areas of the San Francisco/Bay Area region of northern California, filling the air with dense smoke and prompting residents to flood 9-1-1 emergency service phone lines to report the flames.

Firefighters are focusing on rescue and evacuation, leaving for now the fight to put out the blazes until residents and key infrastructure are secured.
