Residents of northern California woke up to cracked streets, homes on fire and crumbled buildings after a 6.0 magnitude earthquake hit the area about 3:20 a.m. local time early Sunday morning.

The earthquake's epicenter was located about six miles south-southwest of Napa and 51 miles west-southwest of Sacramento. ABC News station KGO in San Francisco reported several fires and damaged buildings in Napa. More than 15,000 customers were without power, according to Pacific Gas and Electric Company.
