The move comes as a spate of wildfires grows across the state.

According to HuffPost, the fires are causing massive power outages and mass evacuations.

Newsom said it was critical that people in evacuation zones heed warnings from officials and first responders.

The Kincaide Fire in Sonoma County is only 10% contained.

The fire has spread and at times worsened due to extreme weather conditions.

Red flag conditions ― meaning warm temperatures, low humidity and powerful winds ― could help spread the fire.

If you live in an affected area, please stay safe, alert, and heed all warnings from local officials.
