    Those looking for shelter at the church are asked to bring a face mask and practice physical distancing. Napa County says the center will only be open to those impacted by wildfire evacuations.

    Napa County residents with large animals who are facing a mandatory evacuation order can go to the Napa Valley Horsemen's Association, which is serving as the large animal shelter during the wildfire.

    For evacuation assistance from the Napa animal response team, residents can call 707-732-1555.

    First responders from the Contra Costa Fire Protection District, San Ramon Valley Fire Department and San Francisco Fire Department are heading to Napa County to help with the evacuation of the St. Helena hospital.

    Contra Costa Fire says it is sending an ambulance strike team to the area.

    A total of 55 patients have been safely evacuated, a hospital representative told ABC7.

    San Francisco is also sending several crews to the area.

    Our SF Fire Department is heading up to Napa to help with the growing #GlassFire: 5 fire engines to fight the fire & 4 ambulances to help with hospital evacuations.

Emergency contacts will be informed about their loved ones' new hospital location. Those who have questions may call 707-963-6545."

    Pam McGivern, a St. Helena resident, told ABC7 News the fire is just a few miles away from her home and says it's "frightening." She says she was alerted by her neighbor about the fire and plans to evacuate soon.

    McGivern says she's heard several propane tank explosions and multiple homes in the area are actively burning.

    At this time, CAL FIRE says the cause of the fire is unknown.
