2 additional fires reported near Glass Fire in North Bay, mandatory evacuations underway

ST. HELENA, Calif. (KGO) -- As fire crews battle the Glass Fire which has scorched 2,500 acres in Napa County, officials say two additional fires have been reported nearby. All three fires are prompting evacuation orders in Napa and Sonoma County.

The Glass Fire began Sunday at 4 a.m. on the 200 block of North Fork Crystal Springs Road in Deer Park and has been spreading at a "dangerous rate," CAL FIRE says. As of 7:30 p.m., the wildfire is at 0% containment.

According to Sonoma County Sheriff's Office, the two new fires started just west of St. Helena. The Shady Fire and the Boysen Fire, being called the Branch 5 Complex Fire, is burning by the Sonoma - Napa county line and are believed to be spot fires of the Glass Fire.
