Damaging Napa County Wildfire Grows to 5 Square Miles

Posted: Updated:
A wildfire in rural Northern California that has forced the evacuation of 200 homes has grown to 5 square miles, though officials say crews aided by better weather made progress as they worked to control the flames overnight.
 
State fire Deputy Chief Gabrielle Avina said the blaze in the Pope Valley area of Napa County had burned 3,200 acres as of Wednesday morning, an additional 500 acres from the previous night.
 
The Butts Fire remained 30% contained. Avina said crews, however, were aided by higher humidity and lighter winds. They were expecting those conditions to hold through the day.
 
The fire has damaged one home and four outbuildings. In addition to the 200 mandatory evacuations, Avina says another 180 homes are threatened.
 
No injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire is unknown. (AP)
