>> breaking news out of lake county where still another wildfire is burning out of control. this one is dangerously different. entire communities, including this one, middle town, have been devastated by fire thousands have been forced to get out and firefighters have been seriously hurt. good morning, everyone, i'm carolyn tyler. thanks for joining us on this sunday, september 13th. here's the latest on what's being called the valley fire. this fast-moving fire quickly exploded in size to over 40,000 acres after breaking out yesterday afternoon. involve structures have gone up in flames. hundreds more are threatened. hundreds, if not thousands, of residents have been forced to evacuate. many running as that fire came down the hill toward their
6:01 am
homes. here's a map now of where the fire is burning in the community of cobb. it's burning so fast it's challenging firefighters' ability to warn residents of the danger. we have some extraordinary video to share with you some morning from the community of middletown. an abc7 news photographer was allowed to stay there after the mandatory evacuations took place. house upon house is burning. there's no sound. you just hear the crackling there of the flames. you will also notice there are no firefighters. people's possessions, their memories gone in an instant. with he won't know the extent of the damage in middletown until later today. but it is definitely substantial.
6:02 am
we received word the fire destroyed a school. a school that serves kindergarten through high school. a small private school. we have this report. katie is going to join us live now. good morning, katie. >> good morning. we are live at the napa county fair grounds in calistoga where the red cross shelter is in place for the thousands of people who have been evacuated. at this point some 500 people spent the night here, we got to highway 29 to the twin pines casino and at that point a wall of fire appeared to be approaching highway 29. we turned around with evacuees and headed south to calistoga and spent the night here. many are sleeping in cotts, others are sleeping in their cars and in tense. there are mandatory evacuations of that now spread to napa county in the area ofetna spring
6:03 am
road, all of pope valley and pope valley to the garage. the fire has not load many i want to show you video from overnight taken in middletown. fire has consumed many houses, businesses and abandoned cars. you see firefighters are just trying to get people out and protect as many homes as possible. they have not given us any specific numbers for buildings lost, and that is part of the heartbreak here. many people just curious in their home has made it, if their loved ones are out and there really aren't those answers for them this morning. much. information we are getting comes from evacuees, and the communities of cobb, middle value have suffered extensive damn. sue came down highway 29 within the last hour. >> nothing but fire and ash many the ash is so thick, you can't even imagine. it's like a movie. a horrible movie.
6:04 am
>> sue is 65 years old. she and her husband fled with their dog. she said she's never been without a home, and this is devastating for her. the destruction of the fire cannot be overemphasized. there are several areas on advisory here in napa county that should be readdy to leave at any minute. summit lake drive and river lake road all on advisory. meanwhile at the red cross shelter, local chefs and restaurant are helping the red cross prepare from 500 to 800 meals for the people. cal fire tells us they expect an update at 7:00 a.m. when the sun comes up. that's when they will be able to get a better assessment of the damage and maybe be able to let people know when they can get back to their homes. but that doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon because, as we've said, the fire continues to grow and we've heard nothing about containment. live in calistoga, abc7 news.
6:05 am
>> katie, thank you for that very comprehensive report. cal fire spokesperson daniel talked by phone with us about what to expect today in the fire zone. >> we are hoping that the winds will die down a little bit. that we continue to see cooler temperatures and we will be able to make progress to get ahead of this fire. but as we've seen with fire after fire, it's taken days and days and days of hard, tireless work to slow down a fire like this. there may be more communities in the near future and question will be working with the sheriff's department to do as much notice as we can to those residents if the fire does change direction or goes toward a different community. >> he cautioned against any expectations of a quick result. on the phone is corey reynolds. thanks for speaking with us, officer reynolds. we is eit's grown overnight from
6:06 am
25,000 acres to 45,000 ache. can you tell us about the challenges you are facing? >> the biggest challenge is keeping the roadways open and keeping them safe and making sure people can get out of that area. we are asking people not to abandon their cars. you know, we've had that issue between middletown and hidden valley lake. those residents, you know, we can get you out of there, but you need to be patient and take it slow. >> so you were telling us before about the roads that are closed. how is that -- which ones are still closed? how is that impacting the evacuation process? >> it's gone fairly smooth except for the on struck that is we've run into. we've had powerlines down, trees are falling down, things of that nature. but highway 29 is closed from tubs lane in napa county, northbound closed, southbound open so people can get out.
6:07 am
highway 29 is closed. 175 at red hills is closed. and 53 at highway 20 is closed. south bound is closed. and northbound is open again so evacuees can get out. >> people should just be trying to avoid those areas. thank you very much, officer, for talking with us this morning. with have a list of all the areas under a mandatory evacuation order right now. bottle rock and high valley roads, highway 175 and con, highway 29 at tubs lane in calistoga and napa county, highway 29 at highway 53 in lower lake, buds canyon road to the napa county line. including estates, middleton and hidden valley lake. evacuation centers are set up at the kelseyville presbyterian church and you saw katie reporting from the calistoga fairgrounds.
6:08 am
mr. rider is one evacuee who shot this video on his phone after he got out. he tells abc7 news he, his wife, three young boys and dog ran for their lives from their home in hidden valley lake. >> the sound of the fire was that of a jet plane in flight. you could see fire advancing. it was incredible. we weren't evacuating carefully and cautiously, we were fleeing. >> rider said they only had time to grab a couple important items and then they had to load up and get out. he believes his home and photography business have been destroyed. and pg&e is telling abc7 news nearly 6500 customers are without power because of that fire. those without electricity are primarily in the cobb, hidden valley and middletown areas. those are the hardest-hit communities. pg&e said there's no estimated time when power will be restored because conditions are no -- are so precarious there.
6:09 am
our meteorologist lisa argen has, of course, been monitoring the fire conditions in lake county. lisa, what's the latest? >> we have temperatures in the 60s. the winds erratic but they are light right now. relative humidity has come up because we have a little light rain many throughout the day the winds will continue to be a problem as they shift out of the south up to, perhaps, into the northwest, as well. 20 to 25 miles an hour. and then you will see them drop off throughout the afternoon. but the rain, it is ending in parts of the north bay. we've seen anywhere from a couple hundredth to a tenth of an inch of rain right here up on mount st. helena. we will continue to monitor this as it begins to dissipate. we will still see the warm temperatures in the upper 80s to low 90s today but as much as a 15-degree temperature drop tomorrow where the fire is. we will detail that and the rest of the forecast coming up. care lip. >> thank you. we told you earlier about

firefighters who were injured in the valley fire. all four of them are recovering from second degree burns at the u.c. davis burn center this morning. abc7 news reporter sergio quintana tells us this was an incident that has a lot of their fellow firefighters rattled. >> outside u.c. davis medical center there have been cal fire crewmembers waiting for information on their firefighters. a fire captain and three members with a helicopter crew were among the first to be with the fire but it overtake them. the firefighters are in recovery now and when there's something traumatic like this, it's devastating for them and their families. mike lopez is the cal fire president. he visited with the team members. he said the captain may have suffered nor serious injuries than the other three. their family members have joined them at the hospital. they are part of a helicopter team stationed at boggs mountain.
6:11 am
>> they are transported in and dropped in a spot and the helicopter goes back up in the air with the bucket on and does the work with dropping the water like you often see. >> at some point the fast-moving fire overtook the four team members so they had to be extracted by their helicopter. cal fire has just gun their inquiry about this incident. >> we go in and investigate and try to figure out exactly what happened, especially in this situation so we can prevent or create training so it would never occur again. >> these four firefighters are among the best trained and well-equipped in the state. it's unusual for so many to be overrun like this. that's no doubt troubling for them and their fellow firefighters. >> i'm sure they are emotionally drained, physically drained after being stuck in a situation where your life is on the line doing your job. >> and unfortunately fire season may go on for a few more months. in sacramento, certainly devastating. >> viewers are helping to tell

and glam at 9:00 p.m. here on abc7. and right here right now we have lisa argen with your accuweather forecast. >> feels mild out there due to the south winds, but we have a few light rain showers around the area. that is certainly a bonus, especially in the north bay. here's a look at the fire conditions up in the north where we are looking at temperatures in the 60s. relative humidity about 65%. right now the winds are light but they are picking up because we have our strongest winds at sunrise and around sunset. so unfortunately with the erratic conditions they will be getting stronger, these winds. up to 20 and 25 miles an hour. but then look how quickly it drops throughout the afternoon. then we get closer to sunset and it's breezy again. but we are looking at the cloud cover, the higher relative humidity. the temperatures are up, as well. and the green representing some of that rain. anywhere from just mist and drizzle to sprinkles to .07 to a tenth reported from hidden
6:21 am
valley and cobb mountain. and further north toward clear lake you see all the conditions here from kelseyville, lake port and niese. temperatures mild but at least we have the relative humidity and moisture to speak of. offshore, not much. it is kind of evaporating. that will be the trend toward the morning hours. 62 oakland, 63 san jose and morgan hill with half moon bay 57. we have cloudy skies and numbers are quite mild from the delta, up through concord and livermore. the higher up you go the relative humidity drops. the lower elevations looking at the benefit of some of that higher moisture content out there. the south winds bringing up the warm air. 9 degrees warmer from fire field. 6 degrees warm he in concord. here's a look at the relative humidity. you notice 60 to 61% around concord. and elsewhere we are doing pretty good now but, of course, it dries out throughout the
6:22 am
afternoon as the temperatures increase and the sun comes out and we get dryer conditions. scattered showers are possible, but that's really beginning to wane throughout the morning hours. a chance of light rain, but it's better than nothing through tomorrow. this system is the one that's bringing up the south winds, the moisture, the high relative humidity. this one takes over tomorrow. that will drop temperatures as much as 15 degrees. numbers today up toward the fire in the upper 80s to near 90. tomorrow 15 degrees cooler. 71 oakland, 74 san mateo, 84 in san jose andç livermore. and the accuweather seven day forecast so cooler conditions tomorrow. still the clouds. still the possible drops. and then we are getting breezier and much, much cooler tuesday and wednesday. behind the next low and we are warming up thursday, friday and saturday. conditions are a little bit favorable in terms of the cloud cover and the moisture but not the winds, of course. >> yeah. all right. thank you, lisa. up next, a final dance for the

6:31 am
northbound highway 29 is closed right outside calistoga. it may reopen by noon. one evacuationter is in calistoga at the napa county fair grounds. people are still arriving. some admitted they stayed in their homes too long before decide to go pack up and leave. a bat c7 news reporter katie joins us live from the red cross shelter at the fairgrounds with the latest. katie, what a frightening ordeal. >> carolyn, i can tell you the condition here this morning are drastically different than those we encountered last night. it's cool and rained overnight. as we approached lake county last night on highway 29 we made it as far as the southern middletown to the twin pines casino and it was april credibly windy, it was warm, and a wall of fire appeared to be approaching highway 29. we turned around with many of the evacuees who are now
6:32 am
staying, as you see behind me, at the napa county fair grounds. the are he had cross has set up a shelter. some 500 or so people here are in cotts, in their cars. we stayed in our live struck overnight. fire is so intense. seeing really is believing. let he show you some video from overnight. you are looking at video taken in middletown as propane tanks explode. there's nothing firefighters can do to prevent it. they are trying to get people out and save as many buildings as they can. cal fire stretched very thin. we saw continuous resources coming up highway 29 as we were heading south. much of what we are hearing about damage comes from evacuees who say cobb, middletown and hidden valley have suffered great losses. one woman described middletown as nothing but ash and fire. she waited until the last minute to leave wishes is absolutely not advisable.
6:33 am
but sue and her husband safely evacuated from their home on west road in middleton about two hours ago. >> we aren't coming back. we said we aren't going to leave until we see the fire because they thought it was going to die down, but all of a sudden it jumped up. it jumped up and blazed over. >> and it is cooler than it was yesterday. people describe driving through fire, being trapped it it on all sides and doing whatever they could with getting out with the clothes they were wearing and hopefully some pets. here at the local shelter, local chefs and restaurants are helping them to prepare meals. they are expect to go serve between 500 to 800 meals for breakfast this morning. overnight red cross did allow pets and livestock. they will be assessing the situation going forward and the high school may be used a as an additional shelter.
6:34 am
there are several areas on advisory in napa county that people need to be aware they could be under mandatory evacuations at any point. cal fire tells us they expect an update at 7:00 this morning, but as we've heard all morning the fire is progressing. many communities are on mandatory evacuation and advisory evacuation. if you are told to get out, please do so quickly. it is imperative. we are live in calistoga, katie utehs, abc7 news. >> hard to leave behind your home and all your possessions but you do have to think about your life. thank you, katie. joining us on the phone is cal fire spokesperson daniel. thanks for speaking with us this morning. talk to us a little bit about what is happening right now in terms of how many crews you have on scene and what is going open. we have well over 1,000 firefighters battling this fire. up like a normal fire, we've
6:35 am
really had to concentrate not on just being able to fight the fire, suppress the fire, but on life safety. getting people out of their homes and getting this emevacuated from the area. that's been our priority and doing our best to save as many homes as possible. i can tell you firefighters worked tirelessly through the night to try to save as many homes as possible. this has been an incredibly fast moving fire. 40,000 acres already burned? just twelve hours of this fire burning is an incredible rate. this morning we are seeing the winds die down. that's helping somewhat. we are seeing light rain over parts of the fire. that too is helping. but despite those two factors, we are still seeing a very difficult firefight for us. >> so, yeah, i thought it was quite unusual that firefighters were having to devote so much attention of having to get folks out rather than getting in there and fighting the fire. are you now able to do some of that? have people gotten the message that they need to leave?
6:36 am
>> absolutely. with many of the residents now evacuated, our firefighters can continue to focus on structure protection, saving homes and property and building a containment line around the fire. over 1,000 firefighters battling the fire. we have continued to bring in hundreds and hundreds of additional crews from across the state to help us battle the fire. but this fire is burning similar to what we saw with the rocky fire last month, as well as the jerusalem fire. the difference here yesterday is gusty winds out of the west and that did not help. but today while the winds are died down, they are forecasting winds will pick up again and not something we are looking forward to but one of the reasons we continue to bring in so many additional resource toss make sure we have as many firefighters as we can to battle and take a stand against this fire. >> daniel berlant. thanks for joining us from cal fire to give us the latest on
6:37 am
the situation there. four firefighters, among the first on the scene, needed to be rescued themselves after being trapped by the flames. they belonged to a heletact crew. they get flown into the most dangerous areas to try to stop the flames. all suffered second degree burns. >> these events are very unusual. they don't occur very often so when this he do, we go in and investigate and try to figure out exactly what happened, especially in this situation so we can prevent and create training so it will never occur again. >> when the fire is on you, and you have to make life or death decisions, it's very traumatic. >> they rushed all four firefighters to u.c. davis medical center in sack member toe. other firefighters have been stopping by the trauma center to check on them and their families. viewers in our abc7 now community are helping tell this story with their photos and
