#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report

Red Flag winds haven't really surfaced.
We will see those winds increasing overnight.
Smoke is starting to clear = wind surfacing.
Red Flag was extended into Saturday morning.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE
Fire still hung up on ridges above Calistoga. Hasn't moved further towards City. Good structure defense. Steep terrain and really tough to work in. Very few hand crews available to help, there slower process in building lines.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE

Feeling confident that City of Calistoga won't be impacted from fire from that eastern side.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE
Further up along Old Lawley Toll Rd/Oat Hill Trail/Palisades

Fire did bump Hwy 29 and now Hwy 29 is closed in that area from Lake Co to Tubbs Ln
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE
Fire still spreading up - Table Rock, etc. Very rugged terrain so it's a slow process to contain. Long fire front moving slowly. Burning away vegetation at a moderate rate.
Not expecting it to enter Lake Co
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE

Fire continues to threaten Pope Valley and Angwin. Have had "good success" at keeping fire away from Angwin but when Red Flag winds surface it is a "huge concern."
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE
Putting a lot of control line and structure defense in Angwin for anticipated wind event.

Putting contingency line in Las Posadas State Forest as a back up line just in case so no more easterly spread.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE
Slow movement on SE side (Div N).

While Valley floor hasn't really been impacted they still are concerned about the winds funneling fire down Valley.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE

Many ag permits have been distributed allowing winery workers to be at vineyard/winery and CAL FIRE is concerned about so many people in the area.

"Trying to balance needs of fire & community."
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
EAST ZONE
Fire did jump line earlier near Oakville Grd. Very rugged terrain. They're reopening some control lines from the 2017 fires. If they can get fresh lines put in - "it's a lot of line, lot of work" - should slow fire growth SE.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
WEST ZONE - Sonoma County

Continuing to monitor and mop up/eliminate hot spots in S along Adobe Road/Sugarloaf/S. Mayacamas. Still concerned about wind event.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report

Entire fire is at a 95-100% ignition rate.

Meaning 95 out of 100 spots could ignite (or 100 out of 100).
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
WEST SIDE

Highway 12 corridor "looking really good" including Oakmont. Mopping up.

Santa Rosa "looking very good."
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
WEST SIDE

Calistoga Rd - Good control lines - mopping up. Lateral spread of fire has stopped.

Good control lines to east of Calistoga, too (Diamond Ranch, etc). Still concerns about wind.
#GlassFire CAL FIRE evening FB report
WEST SIDE

Very limited fixed wing (planes) today.

Had a decent helicopter day - 150k gallons of water today. "Decent effort" due to smokey air.

Gov Newsom has said that if ICU and hospitalizations don't stabilize or decline purple counties will go back to stay at home orders again with some modifications. He said they will be assessing the situation in the next day or two. #California #COVID19
That would put 51 counties back on a form of shelter-in-place similar to what we experienced in the spring.

This is via the Gov's daily press conference.
They said they will expect a surge to hit hospitals in the next two weeks in the wake of holiday weekend celebrations.

Right now NorCal (not Bay Area), entire SoCal, and Gold Country are areas of concern.
