The American Fire, first reported at 3:19 p.m. west of Interstate Highway 80 in Napa County, had been 30 percent contained late Sunday night but crews made “significant progress” overnight in extinguishing the blaze, Cal Fire officials said.
The fire has burned 526 acres, as well as one outbuilding and several wooden fences behind a residential neighborhood in southeast American Canyon. It initially prompted “advisory evacuations” in that area, but those were lifted around 7:15 p.m., according to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
