Fifteen fires ignited late Sunday evening, remained mostly uncontained, and are likely to continue spreading because of heat, low humidity and wind with many of these fires located in Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley, heart of California’s wine country, according to NASA.  Despite the massive number of firefighters deployed to fight the flames, most fires remain 0% contained at present.  Too many other factors are in play that make containment difficult including high winds, dry conditions, and low humidity.

Dangerous fire weather conditions continue Wednesday and into Thursday.
