NAPA COUNTY, California — A new, fast-moving wildfire in Napa County, Calif., has prompted evacuation orders.

This fire, known as “The Glass Fire,” broke out overnight and has already burned more than 800 acres near the small town of St. Helena.

And there's no containment.

Cal-fire says this wildfire is moving at a "dangerous rate of speed."

Planes have been dumping fire retardant on the fire throughout the day.

A hospital in St. Helena says it's transferring some patients, but most staff and patients are sheltering in place.
