City of Napa under advisory evacuations as wildfires continue

Raging wildfires in Napa, Sonoma, and Solano counties has prompted Cal Fire to expand evacuation advisories.

The 43,000-acre Atlas fire had only moderate growth overnight thanks in part to winds that were milder than expected Wednesday night.

Meanwhile there is new information about evacuation centers.

People here should have a go bag ready with important papers, essentials and any medications so if that order comes they can get out quickly. It had jumped to Wooden Valley Road, north of Fairfield, and was moving southeast, prompting a mandatory evacuation order for Gordon Valley, Williams, Lambert and Clayton roads.

At dawn, the eastern sky was pink from smoke from the Atlas Fire which is burning into Solano County.

Classes have been canceled Wednesday at Solano Community College, and schools in the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District was also canceled for its 21,000 students.

Our KTVU crew was at Suisun Valley and Rockville Road which is one of the dividing lines between evacuated areas and areas that are now under a warning to prepare for evacuation.

While no city residents have been told to leave their homes, Napa is the site of three shelters that have more than 1,000 refugees from elsewhere in Napa County that have burned or where fires present a more immediate threat.

As of Tuesday morning, winds were coming from the southwest, but that's expected to change in the coming days, as winds shift to come from the north. It wasn't immediately clear how many people were affected by the later orders. Animals are not permitted in the evacuation center, but there is a large animal evacuation center set up at Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo at Gate 6, Emergency Services reported.
