Trail of devastation left by California wildfires

(NBC News) Evacuations continue as a string nearly two dozen wildfires burns across Northern California.

At least 21 people have been killed by fires. Close to 200 more have been injured, and more than 100 others are missing.

Officials estimate that more than 3,500 homes and commercial buildings have been destroyed, and more losses are expected.

June Clark was among those who lost nearly everything.

"We have our family, everybody is safe, everyone we know that has lost their home is safe and it's just stuff," she said as she surveyed the ashes of her home.

"Yesterday was an aggressive day for fire behavior," Napa County Fire Chief Barry Biermann said Wednesday morning. "We are expecting some extreme fire behavior and growth of our incidents." 

High winds are expected to return Wednesday evening, making the job harder for crews working to contain the fires.
