4.2 magnitude quake rattles Sonoma County area burned by Kincade Fire

The USGS says a quake struck at 12:34 p.m. Sunday near The Geysers.

GEYSERVILLE, Calif. — A small earthquake has rattled a Northern California wine region where a huge wildfire is burning.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) says a quake with a magnitude of 4.2 struck at 12:34 p.m. Sunday near The Geysers. The preliminary magnitude was reported as a 3.9 according to the USGS.

A Sonoma County Sheriff's dispatcher says there have been no calls reporting damage or injuries.

The Geysers is the world's largest geothermal field, with power plants drawing steam from mountain wells to create electricity.

A wildfire that broke out in the area on Oct. 23 has burned 77,758, or roughly 121 squares miles, of dry brush and timber. The blaze is 78% contained.
