Glass Fire reaches 97% containment

Bay Area

NAPA COUNTY, Calif. (KRON) — Firefighters are nearing containment on the Glass Fire which blazed through Napa and Sonoma counties starting at the end of September. At last check, the fire has burned 67,484 acres and is 97% contained, according to Cal Fire. Full containment is expected Oct. 20.

In the latest report, the fire has damaged 282 structures and destroyed 1,555. A total of 21,785 structures are threatened.

In Sonoma County, 68,000 people have been evacuated, according to Cal Fire.

The Glass Fire first sparked in Napa on Sunday.

The fires in the famed Napa-Sonoma wine country came as the region nears the third anniversary of the Tubbs Fire that erupted in 2017. Just a month ago, many of those same residents were evacuated from the path of a lightning-sparked fire that became the fourth-largest in state history.

Cal Fire continues to investigate the cause of the Glass Fire. NewsNation’s Nancy Loo says a possible cause is reportedly electric fencing around a remote vineyard near the point of origin on Sunday.

On Monday evening, Governor Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in Napa, Sonoma, and Shasta Counties, where the Zogg Fire is burning.

Pacific Gas & Electric was inspecting its equipment as it sought to restore power to more than 100,000 customers who had it turned off in advance of gusty winds or within active fire zones. The utility’s equipment has caused previous disasters, including the 2018 Camp Fire that killed 85 people and devastated the town of Paradise in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

Evacuations were also ordered in Shasta County as the Zogg Fire spread over 23 square miles (59 square kilometers). Residences are widely scattered in the forested area in the far northern state. The region was torched just two years ago by the deadly Carr Fire – infamously remembered for producing a huge tornado-like fire whirl.

The causes of the new fires were under investigation.

So far this year, more than 8,100 California wildfires have killed 26 people, scorched 5,780 square miles (14,970 square kilometers), and destroyed more than 7,000 buildings.

Most of the losses occurred after a frenzy of dry lightning strikes in mid-August ignited a massive outbreak of fires.
