With more than 70 percent containment, firefighters are concentrating their efforts on north rural Yolo and Napa Counties. Mandatory evacuation orders were lifted for residences along Highway 16 on Tuesday, though Cal Fire warned that road closures would remain in place as firefighters continued to operate in the area. Evacuation orders were lifted for Highway 128 between the city and the Monticello Dam on Friday, with the highway reopening to road traffic shortly after 9 a.m. according to a dispatcher. Moderate temperatures and calmer winds helped firefighters create and maintain fire breaks along the outer edge of the blaze’s perimeter. Fire officials warn that hot weather could still help the fire grow over the coming days, though Cal Fire said full containment of the blaze is expected by the end of the week.  ]]>
