Before and after photos: Wildfires rip through Sonoma County
Many well-known businesses, schools and local landmarks have been erased from the local landscape after the wildfires that have roared through Santa Rosa.
The most recent Press Democrat estimate of the homes and structures lost in the Santa Rosa neighborhoods of Coffey Park and Fountaingrove show more than twice the official number, days after the still-active Tubbs fire raced through.
At least 1,000 homes and structures were lost in Coffey Park, including entire blocks along Barnes Road and Hopper Avenue. In Fountaingrove, at least 500 homes along the winding, formerly tree-lined street were destroyed.
A number of local businesses have been reduced to rubble including Willi’s Wine Bar, the historic Fountaingrove Round Barn, and Kmart. Countless others have been badly damaged.
To get a clear picture of how the devastating fires have changed the landscape of Sonoma County, look through our gallery of before and after images above.
