A fire that began in the early hours of Sunday, September 27, had burned 1,000 acres in California’s Napa County by the afternoon, forcing evacuations in the area, including a hospital.
Footage filmed by the Napa County Sheriff’s Office shows the emergency response outside Adventist Health St. Helena hospital during evacuations on Sunday. The hospital said it was evacuating patients “out of an abundance of caution.”
Mandatory evacuations and warnings were issued for areas close to the fire. 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.
The Glass Fire, the cause of which remained under investigation on Sunday, was likely to spread further as winds picked up during the day. The fire was at zero percent containment by Sunday afternoon. Credit: Napa County Sheriff’s Office via Storyful
