NAPA (CBS SF) — Wind-whipped wildfires roared to life Sunday night and early Monday across Wine Country, burning building, forcing evacuations and injuring several people.

The Atlas Peak fire was the largest of several wildfires, quickly growing to more than 200 acres near Napa. Meanwhile, the fire near Calistoga had burned several building and sent several people to the hospital to be treated for burns.

Cal Fire said firefighters were battling several blazes in Sonoma County. The largest was in the area of Porter Creek Road and Petrified Forest Road near Calistoga where mandatory evacuations were ordered for residents along Porter Creek, Petrified Forest, Franz Valley and Mountain Home Ranch Rd.

Early Monday morning, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department said fires had erupted at Mark West Springs and Riebli roads in Santa Rosa, at Shiloh and Conde roads in Windsor and at Highway 116 and Fredericks Road in Sebastopol.

The fires had stretched Sonoma and Napa counties firefighting resources to the breaking point. A call for mutual aid was issued to other Bay Area fire departments.

Fire of the century.
Worst fire in modern American history.
500-year fire
Evidence of Global Warming.

We no longer have anything normal. It's all hyperbole all the time. EXTRA! EXTRA!

Houses still catching fire. Not enough firemen to put them out or if they are present, there’s not enough water in the pumper truck so they are trying to keep adjacent dwellings safe.

50,000+ acres in several different areas burning.

Evidence of Global Warming.

Which is never the issue, but IMPLIED MAN-MADE global warming. THAT is the Leftist position they imply but can NEVER defend.

I’m 2hrs south of these wildfires and can smell the smoke in the air. Of course, 40MPH winds overnight didn’t help.

Just a bad recipe and prayers to all that are affected.

Make fun, but it is a bad fire. 20,000 evac’d, 50,000 acres under fires, 1500 homes burned...it is a bad fire and if you have family there, you might agree.

Rev. Johnson:

Now I don’t have to tell you good folks what’s been happening in our beloved little town. Sheriff murdered, crops burned, stores looted, people stampeded, and cattle raped.

The time has come to act, and act fast.

I’m leaving.

Be careful using that ABC7news link. To watch the videos they require a browser add-on that to view requires you to “agree to set your home, new tab page and your default search to mynewswire.co, while also accepting and agreeing to abide by the End User License Agreement and Privacy Policy.”

Use the below link to a Facebook live link instead (you don’t have to be a Facebook subscriber to view).

I just saw that they have recently put a 747 into service to spray fire retardant...much better than helicopters.

Agreed. The insensitivity and ignorance of some is astounding.

The 747 is better for some things, but you still need the copters to get in close and to fill in the gaps.

14 fires burning in 8 different counties. All have little or no containment.

My cousin in Santa Rosa was awakened early this AM with pounding on the door.

Immediate evac, with just enough time to grab a shirt and get their shoes on.

Fire on both sides of the road on the way out.

And that was less than 20mins after the first knock.

He is certain he lost his home and everything in it. He also has a business in town (curios and hippy art etc.) which he is hoping to save.
