get the latest now from when tom will from cal fire she's going have an update now what's happening in napa and sonoma counties, thank you so much for joining us here on kron 4 news at 3. we have that update that was about 2 o'clock we know the fire is 5% contained. it's burning about 56,000 acres. what's the firefight planned for this afternoon and into tonight. as the winds start to kick in from this red flag warning up firefighters are going to be a very diligently trying to keep the fire from escaping what that. >>general containment they have on the fire. they put in control lines to try to stop the fire's progression too far and if failed and they just need to find a way to slow it right now the fire gap is pretty active at this so they're out there doing their best. >>how does the red flag warning play into what needs to happen tonight. yes, the red flag started about 1 o'clock this afternoon and expected to go through all of today and into tomorrow as well so that with coupled with the high temperatures that
3:49 pm
we're seeing and then very low humidity. that's why the fires become very active again. >>if the winds stay in place is going to be a long night because of fires going to continue to be active is going to continue to mount. >>so there are some new evacuations that have been issued for areas north of calistoga. threat now if the line doesn't hold is kenwood and glen allen but it's looking a lot better for oakmont and santa rosa, how is that all working out today. >>yes, so that kind of goes in relation to the wind the winds coming out about on the northwest and coming out the northwest directions is going to push the fire to the south or that direction with that being said it doesn't mean it's going to stop the fire from spreading in a northerly direction as well just because of what the winds purdue's what they do and how they move around the mountain range, yeah, definitely a the people and keep my out especially in those areas down towards can wear it. recently they also did just north of on so another area being impacted.
3:50 pm
and that just happened this afternoon correct. >>now as aircraft an option at all or is it still too smoky out there. you know aircraft has been up and down it has been doing some and they've been using it as much as they possibly when the conditions allowed actually crafting going to see what they're doing on the ground. >>it has to as make sense for them going into it also has to be safe. that's probably the biggest thing. so some of the concern with the winds is that if the fire starts going uphill like could threaten lake county. can you explain that a little bit correct so that would mean the fire would need to move more to the right now the winds are coming in. it's possible if the winds start coming more out of the west it could potentially start pushing out fire towards the north. becomes a little bit more out of the northwest it's going to push it down further down napa county. sonoma county area. so that would be probably more the direction know. how does that work with the firefighting attack when you're just at the mercy of the wind today.
3:51 pm
>>yeah, it's like when the fire started you know and we've seen this before in re in past years 2017 we saw this with the tubbs fire. the only thing firefighters can do sometimes at that point is make sure people are out of harm's way. >>it becomes a lifesaving effort rather than trying to stop the fire because it's going to be a monster that they're not going to able to stop they just have to let do it's near follow its path to try to protect the homes and make sure people are out of the area. and i heard in the press conference and cal fire to i believe it was the chief who said this that the record before. >>this year for fire burning in california was one 0.5 million acres an hour at 8 million just this season alone in october is notoriously the worst month for fire. burning and destruction in california, how how are you guys doing. >>it's definitely been a long year already with the way things are going in you're coming in october. we're seeing triple digits and napa you know is kind of unheard
