The Tubbs Fire was the most destructive wildfire in California history, burning parts of Napa, Sonoma, and Lake counties in Northern California during October 2017, and affecting the city of Santa Rosa, California the most. It was one of more than a dozen large fires that broke out in early October and were simultaneously burning in eight Northern California counties in what was called the "Northern California firestorm." By the time of its containment on October 31, the fire was estimated to have burned 36,810 acres (149 km2), and at least 22 people had been killed in Sonoma County by the fire.

The fire incinerated more than 5,643 structures, including more than 2,800 homes in the city of Santa Rosa. In that city, the damage was estimated at $1.2 billion, with five percent of the city's housing stock destroyed.

The Tubbs Fire started near Tubbs Lane, named after Alfred Tubbs, the owner of a winery in that area in 1882.
