Helicopter captures destruction of California winery by wildfires

Emergency crews have been battling wildfires spread over several thousand acres in Napa, Sonoma, Lake, Mendocino and Solano Counties, with 15 confirmed dead and many wineries reporting total destruction of their wineries.

This video was posted by CBS SF Bay Area on Monday, as fires that ignited in the early hours of Monday morning were swept through the region by high winds. The most damaging fires have been reported in the Atlas Peak-Stag’s Leap area near Yountville, in Sonoma County between Kenwood and Santa Rosa, and in the mountains north and west of Calistoga.

“It has been a challenging two days due to numerous wildfires burning in our area,” the Napa Valley Vintners in a statement. “Our top priorities remain the safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and our neighbors here in Napa County and in the surrounding areas also facing similar challenges. Our hearts and condolences go out to the hundreds who have lost their homes, businesses and personal property. We are saddened by the news that there has been loss of life and pray that those numbers will remain small.”
