The air quality at the Oakland Raiders’ facility was so poor from deadly wildfires raging in the North Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area that the team adjusted its practice schedule Wednesday.

As many as 16 fires have been burning in Sonoma and Napa counties, about 50 miles north of Oakland, since Sunday night, and there have been 21 reported deaths as of Wednesday night, with more than 3,500 homes and businesses destroyed and more than 122,000 acres burned. They are the third-deadliest and most destructive fires in California history. The Raiders joined with the Bay Area’s other professional sports teams — the 49ers, Giants, A’s, Warriors, Sharks and Earthquakes — to donate $450,000 to support the relief efforts.
