Eyewitness video shows large bushfire in California

STORY: According to local authorities, the 135-acre fire is burning near the Redwood Sanitary Landfill, and is currently 75% contained.

“Luckily the fire is tamped down. It was a wind-driven fire next to the Novato Dumps", Nicholas Vides, who uploaded the video, said to Reuters.

A huge smoke screen was spotted by the San Antonio exit on Highway 10, south of Petaluma, California, where at least one lane was closed, California Highway Patrol said.
