    Officials have warned a small number of people to refrain from drinking or cooking with tap water because the water system was damaged by the recent Northern California wildfires.

    The City of Santa Rosa issued the warning Friday to 13 homes in the Fountain Grove neighborhood, which was hit hard by last month's fires.

    The city says contaminants were found in the water in the areas of the 13 homes. The city did not say when the warning may be lifted.
