A high-speed Fire in Napa County led authorities to order the evacuation of the northern town of St. Helena this Sunday. The weather forecast in Northern California alerts firefighters to the risk of dangerous fires.

The Glass fire has already burned about 800 acres about four miles northwest of St. Helena

California’s Department of Forestry and Fire Protection reported. The state agency warned that the spread rate is “dangerous.”

The troops arrived at the site of the wildfire at 3:50 a.m., but the fire spread rapidly by 20 acres, according to Tyree Zander, public information agent at Cal Fire’s Napa Lake Sonoma Unit.

“And then it went from 20 acres to about 50 acres in an hour, an hour and a half,” Zander said. “And after 50 acres to 800 acres over a four-hour period.”

On Sunday morning, the extinguishing team reported that there was still no containment of the fire. Strong winds make it difficult for firefighters to do.

“It’s rugged, steep terrain with limited access and [there are a lot of one-way roads],” Zander explained. These adverse conditions pose difficulties both for fire crews to enter the area and to remove evacuees.

The Napa County Sheriff’s Office ordered mandatory evacuations along a stretch of the Silverado Trail, known for its warehouses, to homes that are between Larkmead Lane and Deer Park Road and along all roads in Crystal Springs and North Fork Crystal Springs.

College Avenue residents also received evacuation orders

Between Howell Mountain Road and White Cottage Road, all Freisen Drive and Lommel Road and all roads west of Freisen Drive and Lommel Road.

Authorities urged locals to register for Nixle alerts and to be prepared in case evacuation was needed.
