Fire destroyed neighborhoods from north Santa Rosa to the Sonoma Valley early Monday, as an estimated 10 fires burned destructive paths across the North Coast, driven by strong winds that for hours fueled the fires and forced entire communities to flee in the middle of the night. Firefighters in Santa Rosa were short-handed in the face of an unrelenting blaze that started near Calistoga in Napa County and spread west, raging through hillside communities and into Santa Rosa, jumping across Highway 101 and into the northwest neighborhoods around Coffey Lane.
