He predicted a quarter-inch would fall late Thursday in Sonoma and Napa counties.

The hospital had been closed since October 9, as the Tubbs fire swept into Santa Rosa and hospital employees evacuated patients as fire ravaged nearby neighborhoods.

Residents of the wine country towns of Geyserville and Healdsburg have also been told they can go home.

In all, 17 large fires still burned across the northern part of the state, with more than 10,000 firefighters attacking the flames using air tankers, helicopters and more than 1,000 fire engines.

"I'm not saving lives", he said.

"We're still optimistic, cautiously optimistic".

The Tubbs fire around Calistoga was 82 percent contained and the Atlas fire to the southeast was 77 percent contained on Tuesday, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire), the state's firefighting agency.

"It's heartbreaking", she said. "This was going to be our last house".

"We got lucky", he said.

"The most challenging thing is the wind. The bank didn't burn down".
