Authorities in Northern California have directed 180,000 residents to evacuate as a wildfire continues to threaten the area Sunday.

Sonoma County has previously estimated 90,000 residents were being told to leave their homes as a result of the Kincaid fire.

Millions of California residents, meanwhile, are facing power outages as the utility company Pacific Gas & Electric decided Saturday afternoon to begin mass power shut-offs to a large number of customers.

The shut-offs will affect nearly 1 million customers, affecting nearly 3 million people, and include San Francisco, California's wine country and the Sierra foothills.

In the past, the electricity company PG&E has turned off electricity to win customers in an effort to deal with fires. Weather forecasters say, hot and dry winds, which speed 100 km, are more likely to continue to blow until Monday in the San Francisco Bay area.

Across America's southern border with Mexico, forest fires in the Baja Mexico region have killed three people and destroyed 150 homes.
