Evacuation orders remain as Old Fire burns in Napa County

Evacuation orders remain in effect as a brush fire has been burning in Napa County since Tuesday afternoon, although Cal Fire says it is making progress against the blaze. The Old Fire burned at least 570 acres northeast of Napa as of 8:54 p.m., according to Cal Fire’s Sonoma-Lake-Napa unit. The fire remained at 5% containment through several updates. Containment means that there is a break or line where combustible materials around the fire have been reached, which helps prevent the fire from spreading further. Although containment has not increased in recent updates, Cal Fire said the fire is much less active now and hopes to contain and control the fire overnight. Evacuations were first ordered from 1300 Old Soda Springs Road to the end of the road. They now extend to all of Soda Canyon Road and include these areas on the Zonehaven map: NPA-E206, E207, E214, and E215. Twenty-five Napa County sheriff’s deputies and multiple California Highway Patrol units are assisting with evacuations, the sheriff’s office said. Road closures are in effect at Silverado Trail and Soda Canyon. The fire is burning with a red flag warning in effect across the region.
