California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Director Ken Pimlott told the Associated Press that an expected 20,000 individuals in the northern piece of the state had been emptied.

Cal Fire listed updated acreages for a few of the many blazes, including Tubbs Fire in Napa County, 20,000 acres; Altas Fire in Napa County, 5,000 acres; and the Redwood Fire in Mendocino County, 4,500 acres.

Tim Donnelly is a former California State Assemblyman and Author, now on a book tour for his new book: Patriot Not Politician: Win or Go Homeless.

Authorities said the flames moved quickly toward the Silverado Trail - an area dotted with homes and wineries. A Hilton Hotel was smoldering and in ruins.

Another fire burning west of Napa, the Patrick Fire, off of Patrick Road, has consumed at least 3,000 acres.

"The gusts are very, very - they're tremendous and it's what makes this fire unpredictable".

Sutter Hospital and Kaiser Hospital in Santa Rosa are no longer in operation and patients have been evacuated, according to Sonoma County officials.

A smoke advisory has been issued for San Francisco, telling residents to "close windows and limit outdoor activities". Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency Monday afternoon, as wildfires in the state's wine country exploded into some of its worst in history.

The Atlas Peak fire as of about 9:30 a.m. was running toward the Napa-Solano County line, Napa County Fire Chief Barry Biermann said. All Rohnert Park evacuations centers are now closed.

As many as 1,500 structures have been damaged or destroyed in the fires raging across Napa and Sonoma counties.

"We were sleeping, but we kept smelling smoke".

"Probably many homes and businesses, in the outskirts of Santa Rosa and the city itself", she said.

"There power was out so we had to raise our garage door by hand", she said. The paper said there were reports of at least three structures burning on Atlas Peak. He said it took firetrucks ages to arrive Monday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning for the Bay area.

Sonoma County: Two evacuation centers are open in the city of Sebastopol at the Sebastopol Community Cultural Center 390 Morris Street and another at the Veterans' Memorial Building at 282 South High Street.
