The Glass Fire burning in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties has reached 50 percent containment as of Tuesday morning, according to Cal Fire.
That number is up markedly from Monday morning, when the state fire agency reported the fire was 30 percent contained. The blaze that started Sept. 27 has burned 66,840 acres and has destroyed 310 homes in Sonoma County and 290 in Napa County, along with destroying or damaging hundreds of other structures.
Cal Fire officials said Tuesday morning that “aggressive mop up and tactical patrol continue in areas where the fire’s forward progress has stopped.”
Local assistance centers have been set up in both Napa and Sonoma counties to help affected residents access government services and relief programs.
The centers are at the Napa County Health and Human Services campus at 2751 Napa Valley Corporate Drive, Building A, Napa, and Maria Carillo High School, 6975 Montecito Blvd., Santa Rosa.
It was also reported around 10:15 a.m. Tuesday that multiple firefighters were evaluated for possible carbon monoxide exposure at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, according to Paul Lowenthal of Santa Rosa Fire Department.
