A wildfire burns out of control on the slopes of Mount Diablo in Contra Costa County, Calif., seen from the Woodbridge Ecological Reserve located in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013. By nightfall, it had surged to 800 acres, state fire officials said, spewing a plume of smoke visible for miles and leading to the evacuation of 50 to 75 homes in Clayton, a town of about 11,000 people alongside the park.
