Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency for Solano County Tuesday as a deadly wildfire in Napa County continues to grow and spread into the neighboring county. It had jumped to Wooden Valley Road, north of Fairfield, and was moving southeast, prompting a mandatory evacuation order for Gordon Valley, Williams, Lambert and Clayton roads. Deputies went door-to-door on Twin Sisters Road to urge people to leave.
The mandatory evacuation was for Mount Veeder Road at Redwood Road to Mount Veeder Road at Dry Creek Road and Dry Creek Road from that point westward to the Sonoma County line and Dry Creek Road to Orchard Avenue.
Residents in the community of Green Valley in western unincorporated Solano County, near where the Atlas Fire is burning in Napa County, are being asked to voluntarily evacuate their homes this evening, according to Fairfield police.
Travis Air Force Base officials issued a news release about 10 p.m. Tuesday announcing that the base was responding to requests to assist in firefighting and relief efforts in the area.
At least two people have been reported dead in that fire, Cal Fire officials said. The blaze has destroyed 125 structures and is threatening another 5,000 structures.
