Conditions in Calistoga remained stable Friday night, despite initial fears that increasing wind might push the flames down toward town.

Downtown Calistoga was eerily quiet and empty Saturday afternoon, save for the occasional patrol, fire engine and PG&E trucks.

Up and down Highway 128, which was scorched on the first night of the Tubbs Fire on Sunday and Monday, crews were cutting down burned trees and clearing them from the roadway. PG&E crews could be seen inspecting and repairing power lines.

At Tom Eddy Winery visible scars and smoldering trees and other spots showed the fire crept onto the property, but did not destroy the winery office or their home.

Old Lawley Toll Road appeared to have been spared to this point, at least up to the 3400 block where sunny blue skies belied what was happening on the other side of the mountain.

No fire damage has touched downtown and a good portion of just outside the city limits.

Despite the calmer than expected conditions, the city remained under a compete evacuation order late Saturday with no word on when residents might be able to return.
