LOWER LAKE---A Northern California county known
for its large freshwater lake and clothing-optional
hot springs resort recently has gained attention for
something else: several devastating wildfires that
have destroyed hundreds of homes and sent much
of its population scrambling for shelter.
Sparsely populated Lake County is among the state s
poorest, with slow-paced rural life that resolves around
the outdoors, tourism and a budding wine industry.
Its residents are a mix of retirees of modest means,
weekenders with second homes, professionals priced
out of the Bay Area and people who commute at least
an hour over winding two-lane highways to jobs in
neighbouring Napa and Sonoma counties.
Residents say their community is a resilient one,
quick to help out and to rise to a challenge.
"I think we will see a majority of these people building
again," said Melissa Fulton, CEO of the Lake County
Chamber of Commerce since 1990. "They will come
back, they will build, and they will start all over again."
The county, about 100 miles north of San Francisco,
has been hit hard by wildfires that have ravaged the
state this summer, aided by a four-year drought and
crispy, dry trees and brush.
In late July, a fire east of the county s Clear Lake
recreation area destroyed 43 homes as it spread across
more than 100 square miles. As firefighters drew close
to surrounding it, another fire erupted August 9 several
miles from the community of Lower Lake.
Fulton said the effect on tourism is unclear, as some
summer visitors stayed away and firefighters and others
took their place at packed motels.
The latest blaze erupted Saturday, stunning firefighters
with its rapid growth and chasing off an estimated
13,000 of its 64,000 residents.
Combined, the fires have wiped out hundreds of
homes, including off-the-grid houses perched atop
twisting dirt roads, apartment complexes and single-
family homes mere blocks from schools.
Lake County, dominated by mountains and the
largest freshwater lake entirely in California, is spread
out, its tiny towns and communities linked by curvy
highways. Yet, what happens in one part of the county
is keenly felt in other parts because residents are con-
nected through school sports, family, neighbours or
Since the fires broke out, residents say, the generosity
from within and outside the county has been over-
People delivered truckloads of food to shelters and
boarded farm animals and pets for one another.
"It seems like everyone is housing a friend or a
neighbour or a relative in their home," said Clearlake
city manager Greg Folsom, who moved from Southern
California s Riverside County for the northern air. "It s
almost like a small town, in a county."
The latest fire has destroyed nearly 600 homes,
including one that belongs to real estate agent Nell
Boyer. On Tuesday, she waited with her daughter and
neighbours at Lower Lake High School for clearance
to check on the remains of her home and the animals
she left behind.
Boyer described Lake County as both tight-knit but
freeing, a place where she can have physical space and
feed raccoons and cats and chickens in peace.
"It gets in your blood, having land and not having
to answer to your neighbours," she said. Boyer doesn t
know what to do next. (AP)
