Status Update

Situation Summary

CAL FIRE and Napa County Fire Department responded to a vegetation fire that started near the intersection at Howell Mountain Road and Pope Valley Road. Air tanker and helicopter drops, in concert with ground forces, kept the fire away from structures that were initially threatened. Suppressing the fire was a challenge due to gusty winds and steep terrain. Forward progress of the fire was stopped when fire line around its perimeter was complete at 4:06PM. Engine companies and fire crews will be working mop-up and patrol throughout the night. Approximately 220 residents in the Pope Valley and Berryessa Estates communities will be without electrical power until about midnight, until PG&E completes power line repairs.
