Bay Area

NORTH BAY, Calif. (KRON) — Wildfires that erupted in Napa and Sonoma counties over the weekend are impacting air quality in the Bay Area, with a Spare the Air Alert issued and extended from Sept. 28 through Oct. 2.

KRON4 Meteorologist John Shrable said the worst air quality is in the North Bay where the Glass, Shady and Boysen fires are burning. Strong northeast winds are blowing smoke from the fires down over San Francisco and other parts of the Bay Area.

Cal Fire combined the three fires into what they’re calling the Glass Incident, and said as of Monday morning it has burned 11,000 acres, with 0% containment.
