As firefighters continued to rein in the infernos scorching Napa County on three fronts, the city of Napa on Sunday morning ended an evacuation advisory that had been in force for some eastern neighborhoods since Wednesday night.

The Nixle announcement at 11:31 a.m. lifted the optional evacuation effective immediately for areas east of the Silverado Trail and Soscol Avenue.

Cal Fire had issued the advisory three days after the eruption of the Atlas Fire Sunday night. Residents were not required to leave their homes, but were advised to have a bag packed and to be ready to flee in case wind and weather pushed flames in their direction.

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

As of late Sunday morning, there were no announcements lifting the advisory outside city limits.
