Firefighters have contained more of the Glass Fire burning in Napa and Sonoma counties, Cal Fire officials said Saturday morning.

Containment was up to 10 percent as of 7 a.m. Saturday while the acreage burned increased to more than 62,000 acres. Fire broke out early last Sunday morning in the 200 block of North Fork Crystal Springs Road, fire officials said.

No one has been injured or died in the fire, but hundreds of homes have been destroyed. More than 28,000 structures are still threatened.

Winds are not expected to be too bad Saturday, which will be more favorable for the effort to put out the blaze, but the forecast is just a prediction, Cal Fire spokesman Jason Shanley said.

He said:

“Hopefully the weather cooperates.”

Firefighters have had some trouble recently getting aircraft in the air because of poor visibility, but they’re hoping that won’t be the case Saturday.

No air quality alert has been issued so far for Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

Explaining that the steep terrain has been challenging for crews, Shanley said:

“Some of this terrain is ridiculous.”

Cal Fire does not know when they’ll have the fire fully contained.
