The Press Democrat in Santa Rosa has won the Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News for its coverage of last fall’s wildfires, which killed 40 people and destroyed 6,190 homes in the region.

“The real test of a newspaper is in a disaster, and our journalists rose to the occasion when our community needed them most,” said Publisher Steve Falk, pictured.
