The Glass Fire is an ongoing wildfire in Northern California. It started on September 27, 2020, at 3:48 AM from an undetermined cause. The fire is named due to its proximity to nearby Glass Mountain Road. As of October 7, the fire has destroyed 1,517 structures, including local wineries, and damaged 278, and it has forced the evacuation of several thousand residents. The fire was 5 percent contained as of October 1. Initially a single 20-acre brush fire, the Glass Fire rapidly grew and merged with two smaller fires during the night of 27 into 28 September.As of October 15th, the Glass Fire is 97% contained after burning over 67,000 acres, 1,555 structures destroyed including 650 homes and 31 wineries either destroyed or damaged.
The fire forced the evacuation of 70,000 people in Napa and Sonoma County as of October 1. Numerous structures were destroyed in Deer Park, including much of the Foothills Adventist Elementary School.
We are so thankful to our first responders who risked their lives to keep our beautiful community safe. We are now reopened after evacuations and would love to see you stay with us back at the El Bonita.
