The vast and growing Atlas fire, which began burning in Napa County, doubled in size overnight and the flames are now moving south toward Fairfield, a North Bay Area city along Interstate 80.
Officials said the area is expected to enter a "critical" weather event beginning at 11 a.m. with "volatile and gusty" winds.
The fire had crested the ridge at Twin Sisters Road, north of Green Valley and northwest of Fairfield.
School will be cancelled Wednesday for all students in Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District due to concerns about air quality and safety, Superintendent Kris Corey announced.
