State officials announced Friday that the wildfires across Northern California have destroyed at least 5,700 buildings. An analysis by The New York Times using satellite images in combination with its own ground surveys found that one fire in particular incinerated at least 5,100 structures, which would make it the most destructive wildfire in the state’s history. The inferno, known as the Tubbs fire, began Sunday, Oct. 8, and, as of Friday morning, was not expected to be fully contained until next Friday, Oct. 20.
