A fire burning out of control in California’s Napa Valley is forcing thousands of people to evacuate their homes. According to reports Sunday, the blaze, dubbed the ‘Glass Fire,’ started as a 20-acre brush fire about 70-miles north of San Francisco.
As of Monday morning, it has consumed around 2,500-acres and is zero-percent contained. At least 2,000 residents have been forced to evacuate and firefighters are warning the blaze could spread further because of strong winds expected throughout the day.
