PETALUMA (CBS SF) — Three vegetation fires were blazing in Napa and Sonoma counties Wednesday, an indication of the early start of fire season in the Bay Area and throughout the state, fire authorities said.

A Napa County fire near the 7300 block of the Silverado Trail started Tuesday night was about 60 percent contained Wednesday, while the Yellow Fire in Sonoma County burned 125 acres of oak woodland and rolling hills east of Healdsburg and was 50 percent contained, Cal Fire officials said.

The Summit Fire started Wednesday morning near Schramsberg Vineyards south of Calistoga in Napa County was on steep terrain, making it difficult to reach the 2 acres that are burning, fire officials said.

These fires are the most recent of several reported in the region since Monday.
