Sponsored by:

Firefighters in the Napa Valley Wine Country continue to battle a brush fire near the Calpine power plant at The Geysers. The blaze broke out last night and so far has burned almost 60 acres.

California Department of Forestry Captain John Lovie says there are 200 firefighters on the scene. CDF is using so many people because it´s threatening the power plant.

A second Wine Country fire which broke out last night in St. Helena has been controlled after burning 85 acres. The flames damaged a pump house.

There´s no estimate yet of when The Geysers blaze will be contained.
