Rumble A wildfire burning on Atlas Peak in California’s Napa Valley forced the evacuations of some residents on October 8, local media reported. One resident, Roxanna Torrez, filmed this video around 1 am on Saturday, when she was returning to Napa on Highway 12. She said she and her friends were caught off guard when smoke from the flames reduced their visibility and left them unable to see the road. She told Storyful that they escaped unharmed. Cal Fire said firefighters were battling the 200-acre fire off Atlas Peak Road, south of Lake Berryessa. Credit: Twitter/Roxanna Torrez via Storyful
