Sheriff's Office Warns Against Last-Minute Evacuations as Napa County Fire Spreads

The Napa County Sheriff’s Office warned people who are evacuating the expanding Glass Fire should not wait until the ‘last second’.

The fire, which began in the early hours of Sunday, September 27, had burned 1,800 acres in California’s Napa County by the evening, forcing evacuations in the area, including at a hospital.

The Napa County Sheriff’s Office reminded those evacuating not to stop or park in turnouts to view the fire, saying the spaces were needed to park emergency vehicles.
