SANTA ROSA — President Donald Trump says the federal government will be there for the people of California as devastating wildfires rage through the state's famed Wine Country.

Trump says he spoke with Gov. Jerry Brown Monday night to "let him know that the federal government will stand with the people of California. And we will be there for you in this time of terrible tragedy and need."

At least 15 people have died and at least 2,000 homes, businesses and other structures have been destroyed by the wildfires in Northern California.
