Tens of thousands of acres of wildlands and interface areas were blackened this past week and some are still burning, but there was also some good news on park lands that so far, have escaped unscathed.
As a result of the fires, many planned outdoors events for Sonoma County this week have been canceled or postponed. Others are still happening, hoping to provide a respite in places unaffected by fire.
