She reported the department has two brush units, 10 firefighters, one water tender and a battalion chief at work.

Wildfires have raged through northern California counties over the last week.

By Saturday afternoon, the fire had grown to 1,000 acres, with high temperatures and gusty winds fanning the flames and prompting evacuations in the area.

Ash has been seen falling in the Bay Area, about 75 miles south of the fires.

Across the bridge in Marin County, some customers coughed as they stopped for gas at the Shell station in Sausalito, employee Sergio Garcia said. "It's a little scary". It looks like a movie.

Jesper Joergensen, 52, initially said he had started a fire to burn trash but then said he had been grilling in a permanent fire pit the day before the blaze began, according to a court document.

The fire, which was human caused, is just five per cent contained, according to InciWeb, a federal government wildfire website. During the 3 a.m. overflight there were large areas of very active fire, as represented by the red dots in the map below.

Past year was California's deadliest for fires.

"A lot of friends and family were texting today and saying they were having some PTSD", said Savannah Kirtlink, who evacuated her Napa home during the blazes in December. About 300 people were told to flee their homes, and more than 100 buildings were threatened.

Forecasters say the threat of wildfires will diminish in the U.S. Southwest this month but increase in the Northwest and along much of the California coast. "People need to be prepared". "So we need to get people out of the fire's path so we can get in and do our jobs".

"Usually with a fire, we can chase it".

The biggest impact from the fire so far has been smoke. "The best word I can come up with is hectic".

Warm Springs tribal assistant fire management officer William Wilson said the fire jumped the highway and was moving toward a neighborhood on the reservation where the evacuation notices were issued.

"Due to the erratic wind behaviour, it's heading wherever it wants to head at the moment", McLean said.
