Napa County wildfire evacuations lifted near Lake Berryessa
Saturday, 12 August 2017 Residents were allowed back into their homes and roads were reopened to motorists Saturday in Napa County after fire crews made headway overnight to contain a wildfire southwest of Lake Berryessa, officials said. Burning in a relatively remote area, the blaze came within reach of several structures and homes, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. An unknown number of residents, including those in a nearby mobile home park, were advised to leave the vicinity Friday. The fire started Friday afternoon near Sage Canyon and Berryessa Knoxville roads off Highway 128 and grew to 114 acres. A stretch of the highway, along with local roads, was closed as emergency vehicles rolled through the area.
The Lolo Peak fire that has burned through more than 30,000 acres in Western Montana has led to evacuations of thousands of residents, with National Guard deployed in some areas. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
