Skyline Park Fire

Flames move up a hillside at Skyline Park in south Napa on Tuesday evening.

The city of Napa issued an upbeat fire report Thursday morning, saying things had gone well in the city overnight. 

There are active fires to the east and west of the city, but no evacuations are in effect within the city limits, the Police Department said.

At dawn, the eastern sky was pink from smoke from the Atlas Fire which is burning into Solano County. On the west, there was a trace of pink south of the city from the Partrick Fire, while the areas that flamed up on Monday and Tuesday were dark.

Air quality was vastly improved in the city and stars were visible before dawn.

The 5,000 residents of Calistoga are under full evacuation order in case the Tubbs Fire around Mount St. Helena changes direction and comes into town.

On Wednesday night Cal Fire issued an "advisory evacuation" for areas of east Napa and adjacent county zones, saying residents should have a bag packed and be prepared to leave in case the situation were to worsen. 

No new evacuations were mandated overnight.

Areas covered by the advisory include east of Silverado Trail and Soscol Avenue between Trancas Street and West Imola Avenue. Also, lands east of Highway 221 between Imola and Highway 29, and areas east of Highway 29 from Highway 221 to Jameson Canyon Road; also north of Jameson Canyon in Napa County.
