The Latest on wildfires burning in California (all times local):

7:10 a.m.

A fast-moving Northern California wildfire has destroyed more than 100 homes and forced thousands to flee an area where drought conditions and high temperatures are making firefighting difficult.

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection spokesman Daniel Berlant said Monday that the fire in Lower Lake, about 90 miles north of San Francisco, has scorched nearly 5 square miles.

No injuries have been reported.

The flames jumped a road Sunday and moved into the town of 1,200 that's still recovering from a devastating wildfire nearly a year ago.

Thousands of structures are threatened after the fire burned the post office, a winery, a Habitat for Humanity office and several businesses. Officials didn't immediately have a tally of how many businesses and other buildings were lost.
