you >> reporter: you can see a number of different brush rigs. they are pretty much from all over the state. a lot of reveurs from across the state dedicated on fighting this valley fire. cooler weather and higher humidity. those two factors did help firefighters grow this fire. the fire is 10% contained. cal fire and emergency officials are getting a clearer picture of the extent of the damage. the fire has destroyed 585 homes. the total number destroyed is higher than that. another 9,000 homes are still threatened. a cal fire chief talked about where the fire is head next and why it's such a difficult thing to try to predict. >> relative to the initial start of this fire, it's
relatively stable right now. however there is a lot of hot spots. we only have 10% containment around the perimeter and our efforts are working hard add trying to contain a higher percentage of containment. >> reporter: 23,000 people in lake county have been displaced by this fire. many are staying at the evacuation centers that have been set up in kelseyville and the napa county fairgrounds. there are evacuation orders still in effect. near highway 29 and 175. obviously people are not allowed to go back in just yet. cal fire officials issued an evacuation advisory for parts of napa county. the communities of pope, valley, and angwin. that is just an advisory. keep your stuff ready. the essential items you want to take.

paul duncan. another firefighter lost his home in the cob area as he was fighting the butte fire out in the gold country. a historic resort in cob has been destroyed by the fire. it burned to the ground over the weekend. the resorts president says he is dedicated to rebuilding it. over the years they have hosted celebrities and california governors. it had under going renovations to restore its historic charm when the fire hit. other animals are getting help from organized rescue groups, dogs, cats, goats, and pigs are some of the animals left behind. volunteers are taking food and water to where pets and livestock might be hiding. the animals are mostly scared and hungry so you can't count on them being happy to see you.
>> every place we get is one more an million that will see it through. >> some of the animals like this horse here they are hurt. he was hurt jumping a fence trying to get away from the flames. rescuer says they will be looking for injured and distressed animals again today and for as long as people are forced to stay out of that fire zone. a lot of people who were able to take their animals when they evacuated. they are look for place where is they and their animals can stay. the r ranch by the lake is a private ranch. it has a campground. it has opened its doors to people and their pets and horses. there are still cabin and stable space and room for recreational vehicles. it's all on a first come first serve basis and volunteers have been bringing food, water, and clothes to help the fire victims. >> brian was just here. he said people came up to him. not just crying and emotional about their loss, but just of
