As fire blazed just eight miles away from Sutter Santa Rosa
Regional Hospital, its chief executive Mike Purvis received a
phone call from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office and Cal Fire,
the state’s fire agency. The hospital was officially being
ordered to evacuate.
Two Santa Rosa hospitals evacuated about 100 patients each this
weekend out of “an abundance of caution” as the Kincade Fire
continues to ravage Sonoma County.
Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital began evacuating Saturday
evening at 6:30 p.m. Kaiser Permanente in Santa Rosa,
which also had started a voluntary evacuation Saturday night,
came under a mandatory evacuation order early Sunday

Ginny Pacheco is one of the many residents who lived on Wheeler
Road who comes back regularly to visit the spot where her home
once stood. The entire neighborhood was decimated by the Camp
Fire in November.
Since then, much of the debris has been cleared out.
“This is probably the last time I’ll see it,” Pacheco said. “Next
time I come up, all of this will be gone.” (Fox 40)
