California offers an updated statewide fire map that allows residents to track wildfires. It had burned 8,000 acres to 12,000 acres and destroyed more 50 structures, such as homes and barns, he said.

"Chateau Diana Winery will not be opening today due to the fire warnings and evacuations in the area", the winery said on its Facebook page Monday.

The fire was reported at about 3 a.m. and closed Highway 37 in both directions, according to the CHP. Pimlott says the fires are burning throughout an eight-county swath of Northern California, including Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties.

The city also ordered evacuations in several neighborhoods.

The fires had stretched Sonoma and Napa counties firefighting resources to the breaking point.

Sutter Hospital and Kaiser Hospital in Santa Rosa are no longer in operation and patients have been evacuated, according to Sonoma County officials.

"The Fountaingrove Inn across the street from the mobile home park burned, as did the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, a Kmart store, a McDonald's, an Arby's, an Applebee's and a Mountain Mike's Pizza". The Tubbs Fire in Napa County grew to 20,000 acres overnight.

The National Weather Service reported strong winds in the San Francisco Bay area, giving the inferno more life as it tears through businesses and homes. Officials are predicting gusty winds and dry conditions.

"If you live near Cardinal Newman High School or Larkfield, it is time to evacuate", read a message from the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office. Swift gusts whipped flames into the area, leaving some homes in a heap of smoldering rubble.

Sonoma County resident John Dean was driving home early Monday when "I looked over and saw a house on fire" along the road. Mandatory evacuations are in place for Partrick Rd in Napa County.

As of 6:13 a.m. on October 9, the Cherokee Fire in Butte County had burned 1,000 acres and caused evacuations. Smoke from the fires spread throughout the Bay Area.

There are no reports of injuries or deaths, so far. A brush fire broke out in Alameda County in the North Berkeley hills, but firefighters were able to bring it under control.

Piccinni said nearly all of Sonoma County's fire assets were being utilized.

Authorities in Marin and San Francisco counties made the same plea, asking residents who smell smoke not to call 911 unless they see flames.
