Maps: Napa wildfire, Santa Rosa evacuation area

Maps: Napa wildfire, Santa Rosa evacuation area

"Imagine a wind-whipped fire burning at explosive rates". Jerry Brown on Monday declared a state of emergency in Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties.

The Atlas Peak fire was the largest, quickly growing to more than 200 acres near Napa, and a fire near Calistoga had burned several buildings and prompted mandatory evacuations along several roads.

John Dean was driving to his Sonoma County home early Monday when he saw a house on fire along the road. The Tubbs fire, which had spread from Calistoga to Santa Rosa in Sonoma County, has engulfed more than 25,000 acres (9,000 hectares).

DeLanoy said as she left, she encountered an emergency vehicle that transported her to Silverado Resort and Spa, which was also being evacuated. "If in this area, you need to move out". Evacuations have been ordered along East Road, West Road, Tomki Road to Canyon Road in Willits, Golden Rule subdivision and Reeves Canyon.

Tens of thousands of people are fleeing Napa and Sonoma County wildfires Monday, Oct. 9.

In total, SFGate reports there are now 14 fires burning across eight counties in Northern California, including other fires that were sparked in Butte, Yuba, and Nevada counties.

Napa County could have as many as 10 separate blazes but the focus is on three that have life safety issues, said Belia Ramos, chair of the Napa County Board of Supervisors.

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

"Our neighbor called and told us the sheriff had come - we had to evacuate now", he said. With so many fires, residents of Sonoma County struggled to figure out what roads to take, finding downed trees or flames blocking some routes. Smoke was thick as far away as San Francisco, 60 miles (96 kilometers) south of the Sonoma County fire.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued a smoke advisory for Monday. Wind was gusting in the areas up to 50 miles per hour.

Alyssa O'Gorman and her family fled their home in the nick of time. "It's something that we're having to be very cautious about", she said.

She's too distraught to sleep. "Not until I can see my house".

Authorities have implemented forced evacuations in several rural neighborhoods and worked to clear out hospitals and senior centers in northwestern Santa Rosa. Much of a mobile home park behind the Kaiser facility burned, CNN affiliate KPIX said.

A Hilton Hotel was smouldering and in ruins.

The swath is known as wine country.

Flames were also burning near the Domaine Carneros winery.
