I live in Napa, and the fires are devastating. We had huge winds Sunday evening and the fires exploded in multiple areas. There is currently zero containment. I have not evacuated, the Partrick fire is near us on the western hills but our home is safe for now. Air quality is horrendous, we are staying indoors with windows closed and I take Cody out just to go potty and then right back indoors. Our home currently has no power or cell service but my office does have power so I can charge my devices, answer messages etc. there.
The community is wonderful with helping people and animals, there are several places taking in animals including horses, livestock, chickens, etc. The lack of information and communication is difficult.
Winds are supposed to pick back up later today so really hoping for some progress on containing the fire. Unfortunately the first responders are spread so thin because the fires all started so fast.
We do have a place to go if we need to evacuate. Here is a picture from my back deck early Monday morning:
