Storyline


Local authorities in the Napa County in Northern California issued a new order on Wednesday for all residents in town to evacuate as the wildfires continued to set their homes ablaze.

The wildfires killed 21 and forced more than 20,000 people to flee their homes, according to the authorities.

"The homes here, you know, are all beautiful homes. Now you look around you see nothing but char," said Kevin Ridling, an electroencephalogram-graph (EEG) technician.

Ridling's team is trying to restore mobile and internet connectivity to the Silverado Trail area, one of the hardest hit in Napa Valley.

Silverado is still off limits to residents.

There are more than 200 wineries in the Napa Valley, some of which did not escape the flames.

The Napa Valley Vintners said at least nine of its members reported some damage to either their wineries or vineyards. And at least four suffered extensive damage. One of the hardest hit is Signorello Estate.

"I mean you can just see, there is nothing really even standing. All the other walls, the roofs are gone. There's nothing left," said Raymond Signorello, owner of the Signorello Estate.

Signorello Estate suffered millions of dollars in damages -- losing offices and a hospitality center. But once Raymond knew his family and staff were safe, his next concern became the vineyard.

"The vineyard team, the wine making team showed up, and used all the water we had on the property, you know the hoses, and basically tried to get everything wet, hose down, tried to fight the flames as best they could, but they just got overtaken and they retreated," said Signorello.

"I couldn't sleep, thinking, 'cause I know the buildings probably gone cause I saw the pictures of flames but you just don't know are the vineyards gone because these vineyards are 28 years to 38 years old. And you know you can't replace that. There is a silver lining there that nobody was hurt. We still have all our vines. It looks like our wine, most of our wine if not all of it, should be intact," Signorello added.
