SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – Due to the Kincade Fire burning in Sonoma County, many residents have been forced to evacuate. 

As of 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, Cal Fire said that the fire had burned about 25,455 acres and 10-percent contained.

An Interactive Map by the County of Sonoma shows the areas impacted by evacuation orders and warnings.

Healdsburg, Windsor, and surrounding unincorporated areas were forced to evacuate by 4 p.m. on Saturday. That is about 50,000 people in those areas. 

Around 6 p.m. the mandatory evacuation zones expanded to the coast. Included in those evacuations are Guerneville, Jenner, Bodega Bay, Occidental, Forestville, and more.

Evacuation orders have been placed for the Dry Creek Valley area, Larkfield and Mark West Drainage, and all areas west of Healdsburg and Windsor, throughout the Russian River Valley to Bodega Bay.

Sebastopol and the northern end of Sonoma Valley remain under an evacuation advisory.

These evacuation orders have also impacted Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital and the North County Detention Facility in Santa Rosa.
