Sonoma Valley fires and Monday aftermath (Photo Gallery)

Highway 12 was closed at Madrone Road, and many drivers pulled off the road to document the disaster on their phones. Firefighters started responding to fires throughout Sonoma Valley around 10 p.m. on Sunday, and were kept busy as fires erupted throughout the night and continued all day Monday. Many roads were closed and many homeowners were forced to evacuate the area, as smoke consumed the valley floor. (Photos by Robbi Pengelly/Index-Tribune)
