•Check grounds for hot spots, smoldering stumps, and vegetation.

•Check the roof and exterior areas for sparks or embers.

•Check the attic and throughout your house for any hidden burning sparks or embers.

•Check for fire damage to your home, turn off all appliances and make sure the meter is not damaged before turning on the main circuit breaker.

•Check the well or pump-house to ensure it is in working order.

•Contact 911 if any danger is perceived.

•Consult local experts on the best way to restore and plant your land with fire-safe landscaping.

Firefighters face challenges with steep and rugged terrain while weather has been in the 90’s with persistent hot and dry conditions.  In the evening, fire crews have been able to gain somewhat of a better hold on the fire line as winds die down.

Crews are still working tirelessly on gaining containment but currently it is at a zero percent.

DAMAGE ASSESSMENTS

Napa County | There have been 52 homes and 2 businesses destroyed with 17 minor structures damaged.

Sonoma County | 28 homes and 15 other minor structures have been destroyed.

Cost-to-Date | CTD fire suppression and containment status are at a low $1,500,000 but we believe it may be even higher amount. It may take awhile to assess all damage that has occurred in both Counties.
