Its the season of nature grilling the nature. And these fires are not showing any sign of lull or relief. One after another there is a new fire.
A fast-growing wildfire roared across 2,000 acres east of Napa late Saturday, bringing a call for mandatory evacuations in the sparsely settled area along the Napa-Solano county line.
Earlier Saturday, fire crews were chasing hundreds of wildfires across Mendocino County and the rest of Northern California after a wave of lightning strikes ignited tinder-dry fuels in remote areas throughout the region.
The Napa fire, which began about 4 p.m. Saturday near Wild Horse Valley Road, grew into the largest Northern California fire, driven by 35-mph winds.
More than 200 firefighters late Saturday were battling the out-of-contral blaze, which was threatening some structures as it pushed into Solano County, said a Cal Fire spokeswoman.
Napa valley is famous as the wine and vine county of US. They have some of the best wine cultivating areas in this side of the world. Hopefully these are left intact.
