As crews continue to battle the Glass Fire, an evacuation warning has been upgraded to an evacuation order for areas of northern Napa County bordered on the west by state Highway 29 at the Robert Louis Stevenson State Park trailhead, on the north by Livermore Road, on the east by Aetna Mine Road, the Napa County Office of Emergency Services said Sunday morning.
New road closures have been issued for Pope Valley Road between Pope Valley Cross Road and Aetna Springs Road, and state Highway 29 between the Lake County line and Deer Park Road.
Evacuation centers are open at Crosswalk Community Church, 2590 First St. in Napa and Napa Valley College at 2277 Napa Vallejo Highway in Napa.
County officials said those seeking shelter must bring a face covering, practice good hygiene habits, and adhere to physical distancing. The center will be open only to people impacted by the fire evacuations and an address verification will be required.
An detailed evacuation map is available online.
Officials in Calistoga said the evacuation order for the entire city remains in effect and would be reevaluated throughout the day.
Calistoga officials said in an announcement:
“There are many concerns beyond immediate fire risk. Crews are working to address damaged and fallen trees and downed utilities that threaten roadways into Calistoga. Silverado Trail south of Calistoga is particularly hazardous and fire continues to burn along Highway 29/Lake County Highway.”
The Glass Fire, now 17 percent contained, has burned nearly 64,000 acres and destroyed 293 residential structures, according to an Cal Fire update issued at 7 a.m. Sunday morning.
