Third Napa Valley Fire Sparked Off Soda Canyon Road

About 15 to 20 acres involved.


The third major Napa Valley fire in the last 24 hours broke out this evening off of Soda Canyon Road.

Cal Fire spokeswoman Stacie McCambridge said the blaze started at 6:40 p.m. in the 1300 block of Soda Canyon Road. Between 15 to 20 acres are involved, she said.

Cal Fire Napa County agencies were still responding to the call at 7:30 p.m.

McCambridge had no word on whether any structures were burning.

Witnesses said a trailer was in flames at the site of an old 1800s-era resort at Old Soda Springs Road, but McCambridge could not confirm that report.

A major fire was extinguished in Soda Canyon in February 2012.

The current Soda Canyon fire comes just as firefighters have now contained the "Silverado" fire north of Yountville off of the Silverado Trail and near Oakville Cross Road.

At least 75 acres and one structure burned in that blaze, which started at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Another Napa Valley fire, dubbed the "Summit" fire, burned about 2 acres
near the Schramsberg Vineyards south of Calistoga.  That fire is also now 100 percent contained, McCambridge said.

Still burning and only 50 percent contained is the "Yellow" fire in Sonoma County east of Healdsburg. McCambridge said firefighters expect to have that fire 100 percent contained by 6 p.m. Thursday.
