Dozens of homes destroyed in massive fires in California wine country

Dozens of homes destroyed in massive fires in California wine country

The rapidly moving Atlas Peak fire was visible throughout Napa Valley and heavy smoke was draping over the region.

The proclamation covers Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties, areas famous in the wine industry.

PHOTOS: Fires force evacuations in Napa, Calistoga areas At least two large fires are burning in the Napa area.

Gov. Jerry Brown on Monday issued an emergency proclamation for Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties after wildfires damaged infrastructure, threatened homes and spurred evacuations. Mandatory evacuations are in place for Partrick Rd in Napa County. "If in this area, you need to move out".

The city also ordered evacuations in several neighborhoods. The county is working to set up shelters at fairgrounds to house animals.

Pimlett said firefighters are concentrating on saving lives rather than battling the blazes.

"Right now with these conditions we can't get ahead of this fire and do anything about the forward progress", Biermann said.

Netflix is raising its prices
Netflix's selection of content changes from month to month as the service rotates out TV shows and movies while adding new ones. Wall Street appeared to approve of the move, as Netflix shares were up almost 4% to $191 apiece in midday trading.

Piccinni said nearly all of Sonoma County's fire assets were being utilized. Biermann said the fires had burned more than 68 sq. miles (176 sq.km) as of the morning. "I've gone out to get hold of news, which hasn't been much of a help", Palmgren said, as thick smoke surrounded his grandparents' Sonoma Valley home. Gusts were predicted to be in the 30 miles per hour range in the area of the fire.

Ken Pimlott, director of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said the fires started around 10 p.m. local time Sunday.

Alfonzo said she and her family had to leave their luggage and escape in their van as flames came within one-fifth of a mile of the resort.

"Around 3 a.m., there was a lot slamming of doors, shouting, auto engines revving, so, I get up and go downstairs", Jake Palmgren, a 20-year-old custom crush worker told Wine Enthusiast. The fires forced the closure of all public schools in Santa Rosa and Calistoga on Monday.

In Santa Rosa, the Fountain Grove Inn and Hotel was destroyed and another hotel, the Hilton, was in flames, the affiliate reported. KPIX reported flames near the Domaine Carneros winery.

An emergency evacuation center was full at the Finley Community Center in west Santa Rosa, located at 2060 W. College Ave.

San Francisco authorities issued an air quality alert due to smoke from the blazes, warning residents to close windows, limit outdoor activities and keep pets inside.
