Wildfires Return to Areas of Wine Country Burned in 2017; Evacuation Orders Hit Santa Rosa, Kenwood, Glen Ellen

By Jay Barmann at SFist - San Francisco News, Restaurants, Events, & Sports
Parts of Santa Rosa that either burned or were in view of the burning three years ago were under mandatory evacuation orders Sunday night as more fast-moving fire spread into Sonoma County from Napa earlier in the evening. And more homes in Santa Rosa were burning once again.
Fire was also once again threatening the area of Paradise in Butte County, and meteorologist Daniel Swain reported on the painful coincidence that the areas of both the 2017 Tubbs Fire and the 2018 Camp Fire were under evacuation orders once again.This is extremely hard to say, but within past hour Butte County & Sonoma County officials have both issued nighttime emergency evacuation orders for some of the same areas previous burned by the Tubbs Fire in 2017 & Camp Fire in 2018. Please be vigilant tonight. #CAwx #CAfire
