Fire outside Napa prompts evacuations as it grows past 375 acres

A growing brush fire outside Napa, Calif., has prompted evacuations, state fire officials said Tuesday.

The Old fire, which broke out around 3:35 p.m., covered 376 acres and was 5% contained as of 7 p.m., according to an update by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Evacuations were initially ordered from 1300 Old Soda Springs Road to the end of the road, then were extended to include all of Soda Canyon Road, Cal Fire officials said.

“This is a mandatory evacuation due to a fire,” the Napa County Sheriff’s Office said. “Please leave the area.”

The Napa Community Animal Response Team was activated in response to the fire.

A livestock animal shelter opened at the Valley Brook Equestrian Center, 1132 El Centro Ave., according to the organization. Those in need of livestock animal shelter services were asked to call (707) 732-1555 before arriving.
