One death in Northern California from wildfire

One death in Northern California from wildfire

Torres home was on Wild Horse Valley Road and the Atlas Peak fire was roaring toward his neighborhood.

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

The Atlas Fire, initially reported at 9:20 p.m. Sunday, had burned between 8,000 to 12,000 acres south of Lake Berryessa and off of Atlas Peak Road, according to Cal Fire.

Tens of thousands of acres have burned in multiple wildfires in Napa County Monday morning, Cal Fire officials said.

The Tubbs fire broke out near the northern end of the city, forcing the evacuations of hundreds of homes as well as two hospitals.

The fires are believed to have begun late Sunday night near Highway 128 in Napa County and progressed toward Santa Rosa city limits.

Elderly people, children and those with respiratory illnesses are particularly susceptible to the smoky conditions and should take extra precautions, air district officials said. "If in this area, you need to move out".

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.

Patients at a healing center in Sonoma County must be cleared as the blasts seethed on.

Napa County Fire Chief Barry Biermann said more than 50 structures had been destroyed, but there were no reports of injuries or deaths.

"We were trying to get to the room and the fire was very close", Alfonzo said.

Deputies were dispatched to help firefighters and California Highway Patrol officers with evacuations, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office.

Biermann says the fires had burned more than 68 square miles (176sq. kilometers).

"Trees were ablaze like lights", she said. Gusts were predicted to be in the 30 miles per hour range in the area of the fire. "There was smoke all over the area".

Alyssa O'Gorman and her family fled their home in the nick of time.

She's too distraught to sleep. "Our IDs are still there; I don't know how we'll fly back if the hotel burns", she said. "Not until I can see my house".

Up to 10 separate fires threaten Sonoma County, where officials evacuated Kaiser Permanente and Sutter Health hospitals.
