Napa wildfire forces evacuation of Silverado Resort after Safeway Open

Napa wildfire forces evacuation of Silverado Resort after Safeway Open

The paper said there were reports of at least three structures burning on Atlas Peak. No injuries or deaths have been reported so far.

California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Director Ken Pimlott told the Associated Press that an expected 20,000 individuals in the northern piece of the state had been emptied.

Multiple fires burning in densely populated areas at night propelled by winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour severely strained firefighters, McGuire said.

Several wind-driven fires are burning out of control in the region, and California governor Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency for Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties. Shelters have been set up in the affected counties.

Centers for the evacuated have opened at Crosswalk Church, Napa Valley College Gym and the Napa County Fairgrounds, officials say.

The influenced areas incorporate Sonoma, Napa, Yuba, Butte, Nevada and Orange.

Both Sutter and Kaiser evacuated patients from their Santa Rosa hospitals as the fire approached.

Evacuation orders are also in effect in an area north of the town of Oroville, where the Cherokee Fire has burned 1,00 acres.

In southern California, a fast-moving wildfire in Anaheim is forcing some evacuations.

Other fires have also prompted evacuations in Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Glen Ellen and other areas. "The only thing we can do is hope the wind will come down".

The fire has crossed Highway 101 in Santa Rosa and ignited structures west of the freeway in the area of Kohl's Department Store on Hopper Avenue. Windy and dry conditions were making it hard for firefighters to battle the blaze.

He said crews had no containment on the quick-moving fire.

Cal Fire said the Atlas Fire, south of Napa County's Lake Berryessa, had spread across 25,000 acres. The fire is believed to have begun late Sunday night near Highway 128 in Napa County and progressed toward Santa Rosa city limits.

Brian Alexander, a 34-year-old Santa Rosa resident, told CNN about stepping in to help his neighbors as the inferno surrounded his apartment complex.

"Around 3 a.m., there was a lot slamming of doors, shouting, vehicle engines revving, so, I get up and go downstairs", Jake Palmgren, a 20-year-old custom crush worker told Wine Enthusiast.

Schools were closed in Napa and Sonoma, and residents reported losing power and cellular phone service amid strong winds. The cause is under investigation.
