The Napa Fires are actually three different fires currently.  The Atlas Fire (which started in the Atlas Peak area) has destroyed 252 structures and another 5000 are threatened. The good news is that the fire is 45% contained.  Resources currently dedicated to this particular fire include over 2100 personnel, 182 fire engines, 35 dozers, 21 helicopters and 8 air tankers.  The Tubbs fire has expanded from its Santa Rosa origin, is threatening the northern end of the Valley, and is 44% contained.  On the other hand, the Nuns fire which has combined with the Partrick fire is threatening the west side of the Valley, and is only 10% contained.

Please do not do anything that would interfere with the efforts of Fire and Police resources to fight the Napa fires and maintain public safety.
