LAKEPORT, Calif. — Twin wildfires tearing through vineyards and brushy hills threatened some 10,000 homes Tuesday in Northern California — yet another front in the battle against the flames that have ravaged some of the state’s most scenic areas. The two fires straddling Mendocino and Lake counties had burned seven homes along 116 square miles (300 square kilometers) of rural land. Fire crews were able to slow the spread of one of the blazes into populated areas and instead the fire pushed into the Mendocino National Forest. By Marcio Jose Sanchez and Sudhin Thanawala.
