Fire Chief Chris Waters said at the moment, the Walbridge Fire in Sonoma County, part of the LNU Lightning Complex, is moving toward Guerneville.
In Western Sonoma County, the Myers Fire has stopped moving and crews are looking at containment soon, Waters said.
The Hennessey Fire has three branches. The southern branch in Yolo and Solano counties has slowed down quite a bit. Active spread on the west side has also been contained. The northern part, from Lake Hennessey to Highway 116, is the area of biggest concern Friday.
Some firefighters battling the LNU blaze have lost homes in the fires, said Gov. Newsom.

"When we talk about heroes, that's what we're talking about," he said.
This weekend's weather forecast is adding a layer of complication to the firefight, Newsom added, as "monsoon type weather conditions" could bring more lightning strikes to California.
Fire crews are stretched thin by the multiple fire; 96% of wildfire engines are committed throughout the state.
Newsom recently declared a statewide emergency over the 367 fires burning in California, which opens the door for federal aid. He said the state was working with the federal government to declare a federal disaster, which would help secure even more resoures.
The three major complexes - LNU, SCU and CZU - burning in all but one Bay Area county have torched a collective 500,000 acres so far.
