Multiple fires have merged with the Glass Fire burning in California’s Napa and Sonoma counties, bringing the blaze to at least 42,560 acres – about 66 square miles – as of September 29, fire officials said.
The fire had destroyed 113 structures by Monday, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. However, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said the theme for Tuesday was “cautious optimism” after cool weather and lighter wind helped firefighters battle the blaze.
Evacuations were ordered for Napa and Sonoma counties, and the fire was zero percent contained as of September 29.
