In Pictures: Glass Fire in California quadruples in size

A wildfire in Northern California’s Napa Valley more than quadrupled in size overnight to 4,500 hectares (11,000 acres) as thousands of residents received mandatory evacuation on Monday.

The blaze, named the Glass Fire, ignited on Sunday morning near Calistoga about 100 kilometres (60 miles) north of San Francisco and was fanned through the area’s famed vineyards by dry wind gusts. More than 1,000 firefighters have struggled to contain the flames, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.
