Firefighters struggled to halt the spread of wildfires that have killed at least 23 people in Northern California and dry, gusty winds threatened on Thursday to push flames into the evacuated town of Calistoga.Nearly two dozen fires spanning eight counties have raged largely unchecked since igniting on Sunday, leaving hundreds of residents unaccounted for.The National Weather Service warned on Thursday morning of persistent "critical fire weather conditions" in the area for the next three days, with no rain expected and dry winds from the north with gusts upward of 55 kph per hour.The deadliest of California's blazes, known as the Tubbs fire, was within 3 km of Calistoga, a community in the world-renowned Napa Valley wine country whose 5,000 residents were told to leave their homes on Wednesday.
