By From page A6 | July 02, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Solano County firefighters pitched in Tuesday afternoon to help the effort to control a wildfire east of Calistoga that burned more than 800 acres, at least five structures and was only 10 percent contained.

Ten vehicles and three dozen firefighters from fire departments and fire districts across the county rolled out to the main staging area in Napa.

“It is a true mutual response,” said Don Ryan, Emergency Services Manager for the Solano County Sheriff’s Department of the local response. Departments from Dixon to Vallejo contributed firefighters and engines.

The wildfire started a little after noon at Butts Canyon Road and James Creek Road in the Pope Valley area, according to Cal Fire. Mandatory evacuations of 180 homes covered the area from Butts Canyon Road to north of Snell Valley Road and the Berryessa Estates.
