Ronnie Lott, Byron Scott, Bret Saberhagen and Dan Jansen were amongst the athletes who escaped a fire at a hotel in Sonoma, California, after it was evacuated, according to TMZ Sports

The Fountaingrove Inn eventually burnt to the ground, according to a UCSF spokesperson. The athletes and many of the hotel’s other guests were in town for the UCSF Medical Center Celebrity Golf Classic.

The tournament has been cancelled.

Per TMZ’s report, “A witness at the hotel tells us the situation escalated so quickly, one guest jumped out of the hotel window and suffered a broken arm trying to escape.”

Wildfires have spread rapidly through the Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino counties, with Governor Jerry Brown declaring a state of emergency in Napa and Sonoma, per
