Down the road, longtime resident Bertha Vieyra already had her suitcase loaded in her car.
"My purse and my tote bag is right there ready for me to grab- get my keys and get in the car and go where I have to go," Vieyra said.
Vieyra said she's not too worried about the fires. "I feel comfortable because I get the warnings and that makes me feel safe. But you know what, I think we're going to be ok," Vieyra said.

Residents near Mill Creek Road and Puccioni Road are under an evacuation order. Paul Huillade said he's been dealing with wildfires his whole life- he's not going anywhere until he absolutely has to.
"I was originally from Cazadero and we don't leave- you fight for what you have. So."
Huillade is part of a group text with his neighbors that have decided if they have to leave- they'll do it together.
"When we leave we're going to go out in a little herd. It's a waiting game now- yeah. If it comes this way- do what you gotta do," Huillade said.
The city of Healdsburg is asking residents to be ready to leave, do not wait to starting gathering belongings.
