California Fire Map, Update As Bay Area Air Quality 'Deteriorating Significantly'

  California Fire Map, Update As Bay Area Air Quality 'Deteriorating Significantly' The air quality is expected to remain "unhealthy" through Friday in the Northern Zone and Eastern Zone of the Bay Area."Unfortunately, there's a lot of smoke," a spokesperson for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD), Kristine Roselius, told The Chronicle. "The wind has shifted and the smoke from the Glass Fire is moving southeast into those areas like Napa, St. Helena and down into the East Bay.

Structures and power line infrastructure have been damaged or destroyed by the wind-driven fire over the past few days. Hot spots, falling trees, impassable roads and several other hazards remain, Cal Fire warned.

"Smoke is expected to move back into the area over the next several days with a strong low-pressure system building over northern California.

"Lighter winds and shade from the smoke is anticipated to moderate fire behavior, but fire danger is still extreme. Dry fuels and winds can carry fire quickly. The winds are expected to shift to a flow from the north to northwest today [Tuesday], which will push the fire generally toward the southeast. However, the terrain can also funnel winds, shifting wind direction," Cal Fire said.

Evacuation orders, warnings and road closures are in effect across multiple parts of Mendocino, Trinity and Lake counties, while an evacuation warning is in place in Zone HA of Humboldt County, in areas east of Bell Springs Road to the Trinity County line and south of Pipe Creek to the Mendocino County line.

"Diurnal winds and low humidity will keep hot areas alive [in the North Zone] which could be fanned into a short flare up, especially in areas where smoke clears off during the day...these potential flare ups could occur most anywhere along the fire perimeter where there are available fuels adjacent to persistent hot spots," the report said.
