According to Cal Fire’s latest update, the Kincade Fire had consumed 66,231 acres by Monday morning, and currently stands at five percent containment. As of Sunday morning, the blaze had taken a toll on Alexander Valley wineries, completely destroying Soda Rock Winery and consuming its 1860s-era building. It goes without saying, but at present, the hundreds of restaurants in the area’s evacuation zone are closed.
