A wildfire forced the evacuation of the Silverado Resort in California just hours after the conclusion of the PGA Tour’s season-opening Safeway Open.

Guests ‘escaped in a rush’ prior to midnight on Sunday night as the blaze, which was fuelled by wind gusts of up to 70mph, approached, with the resort later saying that all staff members and guests left unscathed.

However, the fires have killed at least ten people in California and injured dozens of others, while also destroying more than 1,500 homes and businesses in the prominent wine-making region.

Several players who were playing in the event, which was won by Brendan Steele, were still on-site at the time of the fire and took to social media to share some concerning images of it.
