Inferno Engulfs Napa and Sonoma Counties

A fire burns in Napa County late Sunday Oct. 8 2017

Some evacuation centers are already filled to capacity due to the large number of residents forced to flee. In that blaze, 23,000 acres were burned, $36 million was done in damage, 65 structures were destroyed and 11 people were injured.

"It was an inferno like you've never observed", Sonoma County inhabitant Marian Williams told the Associated Press.

"There are fires burning in a handful of areas, but Napa is the primary focus because it started there first", Jourdan said.

In Sonoma County, Santa Rosa's city manager declared the fires a local emergency.

Just as there is a long list of mandatory evacuations in the affected areas, there is also a growing list of wineries, including JCB Collection, DeLoach Vineyards, Raymond Vineyards, St. Francis and Buena Vista Winery that are closed.

Butte County's LaPorte Fire, which began as the Cascade Fire in Yuba County, had scorched 3,000 acres as of 6:19 a.m. Monday. Santa Rosa's historic round barn, at the gateway to Fountaingrove, was also burned, as was the Journey's End mobile home park to the north of Kaiser Permanente's hospital in Santa Rosa and multiple homes along Hopper Lane. The Redwood Complex Fire injured one person in Mendocino County.

In Napa County, guests of the Silverado Resort and Spa on Atlas Peak Road said they had been hurriedly evacuated as flames approached.

"If you live near Cardinal Newman High School or Larkfield, it is time to evacuate", read a message from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office. Those three are much smaller, although they've destroyed at least 100 acres each, but strong winds in the area have been feeding the flames. The Sonoma County Fairgrounds is open for people with large animals; access the fairgrounds via Gate 7 on Aston Avenue. "There was smoke all over the area". Napa County Fire Chief Barry Biermann said low humidity and a lack of resources have driven the fire. The Atlas Fire south of Lake Berryessa off of Atlas Peak Road has burned at least 25,000 acres while the Partrick-Carneros Fire, which ignited west of Napa, has torched roughly 2,000 acres.

The fires have been burning in northern Sonoma County since early Monday morning.

Residents in Napa and Sonoma counties are describing their terrifying middle-of-the-night scramble to flee from raging wildfires.
