Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency shortly after 9 a.m. PDT today for Napa, Sonoma and Yuba Counties.

Pimlott says the fires are burning throughout an eight-county swath of Northern California, including Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties. The Napa County Animal Shelter will hold smaller animals.

Marin County fire officials said they have sent 22 fire engines and five ambulances to assist with the blazes in Napa and Sonoma County.

Authorities were evacuating Sutter Santa Rosa hospital at 1:30 a.m. Mandatory evacuations are in effect in several areas and almost 20 shelters have opened from Cloverdale to Petaluma and from Guerneville to Sonoma.
