. >> breaks news out of lake county where the last hour the governor has declared a state of emergency because of a massive wildfire that's burning out of control. entire communities, including this one, middle town, have been devastated by this inferno. 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. the fast-moving fire quickly exploded in size to over 60,000 acres after breaking out yesterday afternoon. several structures have gone up
9:02 am
in flames. hundreds more are threatened. hundreds, if not thousands, of residents have been forced to evacuate. many running as the fire came down the hill towards their homes. in the last hour the governor has declared a state of emergency for lake and napa counties. take a look at this map of where the fire is burning near cobb, a community of 1700 residents. it's burning so fast it's challenging firefighters' ability to warn residents of the danger. a photographer was allowed to stay at middletown after the mandatory evacuations took place. you see house upon house upon house burning. there's no sound except the crackling of the flames. you will the notice no firefighters. people's possessions and memories gone in an instant.
9:03 am
we've received word the flames have destroyed at least one school, middletown christian school. it serves students from kindergarten through tie school. people are running from the fire stayed overnight at several evacuation centers. one is at the calistoga fairgrounds. katie utehs is there live. >> a lot of people of still screaming in. they spent the night onside roads trying to escape the fire. early estimates were about 500 people spent the night but at in point they are trying to use breakfast to get a more accurate head count as people come to enjoy a warm meal. i can show you the calistoga food and beverages cart here. people are volunteering and the red cross rock stars.
9:04 am
they are serving hot meals to the people who had to evacuate last night and this morning. evacuating middle town last night, highway 29 south was backed up for miles so it does not surprise me that people are still trickling into the evacuation center. i've been talking to evacuees. one worked for the forest serve clearing forest service for years. his candid description of the fire is likely the most accurate. >> one of the worst things i've ever seen. if you want to visit heli, you were nearly in it. >> let me show you some overnight video. many houses were lost. some, we are hearing, were spared. at this point cal fire is trying to get people out and protect as many homes as they can. we have not been given any official count. gas station necessary cobb mountain and hidden valley caught fire and exploded and propane tanks in middletown.
9:05 am
they are getting calls from people still in lake county and the fire path is taking many turns. >> funny how one house burned and the next one didn't and another one, just no rhyme or reason. but it was pretty brutal last night. >> again, if you need a place to go, we are here at the evacuation shelter at the napa county share grounds in calistoga. they will be serving lunch, as well, and the red cross is really trying to assess the situation. there is also a shelter in kelseyville. at this location animal and live stocks were allowed in the pastures past the beverage area. there are lots of horses that people were able to make it out with. the fire has made its way into napa county, as we said. the community is on advisoryies are listed on our website. and we also spent the night with the evacuees, and a lot of people have been approaching
9:06 am
asking, you know, do you know question streets were spared? i just want to find out if my house was spared and at this point we don't know. cal fire isn't saying. they are on attack mode at this point and trying to protect as many structure as they can and protect as many people as we can, but the good news is so far we are hearing that everyone is making it out safely. we are live in calistoga and we will be back with an update in about a half-hour. >> katie, thank you. that comment about the resident is it is hell there is pretty telling. joining us on the phone is spokesperson from the cal fire daniel berlant. thanks for joining us. give us an update how many crews are there now fighting the fire. >> we have over 1,000 firefighters on the front lines battling this fire as we bring in hundreds and hundreds of additional crews from across the state. and as was mentioned, our focus right now is making sure that people that are in the evacuated
9:07 am
area are evacuated. that is been a struggle all light long with making sure those who were asked to evacuate were safely done so. in some cases with the fire burning so quickly, some only had minutes to grab belongings and get out of harm's way. this fire has burned at an explosive rate, and unfortunately, even though we are seeing cooler temperatures than we did last week, the fire burning with rate of spread we would typically see in the peak of fire season. >> we know that four firefighters were injured yesterday. do you know how they are doing? are there any other injuries? >> four of our firefighters did suffer second degree burns. did suffer second degree burns when they were working to contain the fire. they were all airlifted to the medical center where they are being treated. right now they are in stable condition. today they are surround by family. but they are going to be there for some time now, undetermined as they recover from their burns. >> and any other injuries to
9:08 am
speak of? >> at this point, that is all that's been reported. obviously that is a miracle as this fire has continued to grow so rapidly, threatening thousands of people throughout lake county. >> all right. daniel, thank you very much for taking time-out this morning to join us to tell us about what's going on with the fire. again, he says thousands are there on the lines. we have a list of all the areas under a mandatory evacuation order right now. bottle rocket, high valley roads, highway 175 in cobb, highway 29 at tubs lane in calistoga, and napa county. highway 29 at highway 53 in lower lake. but. tts county napa road. and cobb, siegler cannon, middletown and hidden valley lake. evacuation centers are set up at the presbyterian church and where katie was at the calistoga

fairgrounds. bob rider is one of those evacuees to shot this video on his phone after he got out. he told abc7 news he, his wife, three young boys and a dog fled for their lives from their home in hidden valley lake. >> the sound of this fire was that of a jet plane in flight. you could see the fire advancing. it was incredible. we weren't evacuating carefully and cautiously, we were fleeing. >> and he says they only had time to grab a couple of important items before loading up and leaving. he believes his home and photography business have been destroyed. drivers will be facing delays and detours because of the fire today. the highway patrol closed northbound highway 29 at tubs lane in calistoga. 29 is also closed at highway 175 in kelseyville and at red hills road. highway 53 is closed from lower lake to highway 29. all of those lanes could be, and

9:21 am
where you can see a smattering of green from middle town, pope valley, mount st. helena, up through knoxville. earlier they picked up as much as a tenth of an inch of rain anywhere from just some sprinkles to .01 is possible. you see west on 101, cloverdale. but as we get into a closer inspection east of hidden valley lake you certainly have the clouds. whether or not all of this is reaching the ground, not likely. but we've had reports in napa and sonoma of rain as well too this morning. north of geyserville and kelseyville. scattered showers are going to be the exception the next couple days. the next chance on wednesday. 70 degrees around the fire with relative humidity at 47% right now. winds out of the west-northwest. they are coming in from a good direction but you know fires have their own winds, erratic winds. the next 24 hours we look at winds out of the west. and up to 14 miles an hour. then they will sort of level
9:22 am
off. breezy again throughout the around. nothing like yesterday, the 40 miles per hour gusts. but still, windy conditions. we will have partly sunny skies as the cloud cover continues to thin out throughout the day today. this is sutro. 62 san francisco, 67 mountain view and san jose. 67 half moon bay and emeryville a little brighter out there. it is mild from concord to livermore. the reason the numbers are so much milder this morning is due to the direction of the wind. out of the south. so when they are out of the south they are bringing up the warmer air. the air that is ladened more with moisture. and the more moisture that the atmosphere holds, the warmer it feels. that's where we are this morning. we will be looking at the dryer conditions, as well, as the sun comes out and we begin to evaporate some of the moisture. muggy this afternoon. last day of the muggy conditions. a chance of showers each and every day but the best chance comes in on wednesday when this system drops down from the north. this one is the one that's bringing us the cloud cover now. so as this system clears that
9:23 am
one out, the atmosphere will get a little bit brighter, a little bit dryer. but we are also looking at cooler temperatures. as much as 10 to 15 degrees cooler tomorrow. some thinning out of the cloud cover today, and then looking at maybe a few sprinkles here and there throughout the day tomorrow. but you can see most of the activity in the higher elevations. this would be monday afternoon. so by wednesday, though, a better chance. 84 in san jose today. 77 palo alto. look for about mid-60s san francisco. not a whole lot of clearing there. 71 in oakland. upper 70s napa. up by the fire, though, much warmer, in the upper 80s to near 90. look at 89 near antioch and the accuweather seven-day forecast showing a few possible drops tomorrow. still cooler. coolest day of the week should be tuesday with breezy winds and below average wednesday and the numbers come back up slowly thursday, friday and saturday. with brighter conditions and low relative humidity, everything is ripe for the fire spreading but at least we have some of the

9:31 am
joins us live from the shelter. good morning, katie. >> good morning, carolyn. a lot of people have approached me wanting to know how they can help. the red cross is assisting with food and shelter. so if you would like to help, donating to the red cross is always a safe bet. there are a lot of pets as well, and i'm told the organization wine country animal lovers is helping feed them. they can use the donation of food and money and they say all of that will go straight toward the victim of the valley fire. the response here at the evacuation center in calistoga at the napa county fair grounds is impressive. i will step out of the way and show you there are folks walking around with blankets because many people got out with just the clothes they were wearing. they are trying to get a better head count of the people here with the morning breakfast. hot breakfast is being served by volunteers who have just been absolutely rock stars. from our experiencing, evacuating middletown last night, highway 29 south was backed up for miles.
9:32 am
it's not surprising more people are now just making their way to the shelter. we've been talking with evacuees last night and into this morning. one man worked with the forest service clearing firefighters for fierce. his description of the fire is it was hell and they were nearly in it. >> it was unbelievable the way the winds and everything was. probably in our lifetime we will never see that again. >> several people described the wind as tornado-like. the valley fire stormed across lake county with a devastating speed. we are showing you overnight video from middletown. many houses were lost. however, some are spared. at this point cal fire is trying to get people out and protect as many homes as we can. we haven't been given a latest county to structures cost. the gas stations in mound and hidden valley caught fire and exploded, as well as propane tanks across middletown.
9:33 am
people had little time to gather belongings and flee. >> it took like two hours to consume the town. it was unbelievable. >> some people had less time, and others stayed too late, as carolyn made the point at the beginning of our show. the red cross does estimate some 5 hub people stayed at the evacuation center here in napa county overnight. animals and livestock have been allowed. many people got their horses out and we are seeing lots of cats and dogs. the fire has made it into napa county at this point and there are mandatory evacuations i will let you know about, the advisory evacuation. these are areas you need to be ready to go at a moment's notice. anguin, summit lake drive and livermore road. a major relief we are hearing is people are getting calls from
9:34 am
loved ones, ones, and while mans have been lost, we are hearing most of the people have made it out safe. we have no reports at this point of injuries. the fire is still spreading so people still need to be on their toes and ready to leave as soon as cal fire or a sheriff's deputy tells you to do so. abc7 news. >> katie, thank you. our hearts go out to those folks. joining us on phone this morning is california highway patrol sergeant larry. thanks for speaking with us this morning. talk to us about the roads that are closed. which ones are still closed and how is that impacting the evacuation process that katie was talking about? >> the evacuation is going slow. highway 29 is closed from elsieville and the live oaks available to 53. it's difficult to get around lake county right now. we are doing everything that we can to get everything out of there safely. and in addition to 29 and 53,
9:35 am
175 is completely closed from middletown all the way down to where it comes out at kelseyville. it's also closed heading -- i guess it would be tubs lane also. we are still getting information. it's still coming in fresh right now. >> is it orderly chaos? do people seem like they understand and they are patient about getting out? >> [no response] >> i may have lost the officer there. it is guest to just avoid the area in general, again, this fire has burned more than 40,000 acres in lake county. governor jerry brown this morning declared states of emergency in lake county and napa county because of these wildfires that definitely have been fueled by all the dry
9:36 am
vegetation, lisa, from four years of drought. >> absolutely. we had a little bit of precip there this morning. lots of cloud cover. still, a few sprinkles in thelp area. we are expecting a little bit of sun but it's still warm out there this afternoon. with he are expecting temperatures in the 80s for highs. but the conditions now are at about 38%. relative humidity, the temperature already up to 75 degrees. and the winds are variable and they will continue to ramp up a little bit throughout the afternoon. but we have a weak weather system off the coast that is providing the cloud cover and the potential for some moisture. there you see the winds out of the south, 20 miles an hour. but we are going to look at much cooler conditions tomorrow. so here's a look at where we have some light rain showers, a few sprinkles toward cloverdale, and also mount st. helena. we will see the numbers come down. but this morning that wasn't much of a help with the firefighting efforts and we will talk more in detail about the rest of the weather for the bay area and the weekñr ahead coming
9:37 am
up. >> thank you, lisa. you know those four firefighters we talked about, they were among the first on the scene. they needed to be rescued after being trapped by the flames. that gets flown into the most dangerous areas. they suffered second degree burns. >> these events are very unusual. they don't occur often. so when they do we go in and investigate and try to figure out exactly what happened, especially in this situation so we cap prevent or create training so it would never occur again. >> when the fire is on you and you have to make life or death situations, it's very traumatic to the firefighters. >> medics rushed all four injured firefighters to u.c. davis medical center in sacramento. other firefighters have stopped by that trauma center at the state capitol to check on them and their families.
9:38 am
and look at this incredible video posted on facebook. diane carpenter is a photographer who was riding with fire crews on highway 29 when they were several explosions around a gas station. she said it was the tanks at the gas station that were exploding. viewers in our abc7now community are helping to tell the story with their video and pictures. this shows a devastating scene throughout lake county and the hard-hit community of middletown. if you have pictures or video of the fire or any news that happens where you live, and if you can take it safely, share it with us by posting on social media with the #abc7now. our coverage of the fire continues, but first we take you behind the scenes of tyra banks brand new show debuting tomorrow
