Firefighters push for full containment of North Bay blazes by Tuesday

Firefighters continue pushing to fully contain the fires burning in the Napa and Sonoma counties by Tuesday.

The cloud cover and cooler temperatures helped hold and improve containment lines, and there was minimal fire activity through the night that allowed mop up and repair activities, Cal Fire said.

The 54,382-acre Nuns Fire, comprised of six fires, was 85 percent contained as of Friday morning.

The 36,432-acre Tubbs Fire that began near Calistoga and spread to Santa Rosa on Oct. 8 is 93 percent contained.

The Pocket Fire that has burned 16,552 acres in the Geyserville and Cloverdale area is 82 percent contained.

The 51,624-acre Atlas Fire that started south of Lake Berryessa around 9:50 p.m. Oct. 8 is 87 percent contained. Firefighters are still strengthening perimeter control lines, Cal Fire said.
