Bay Area hotels – most of them in San Francisco – will be offering special rates and accommodations for people displaced by the massive wildfires still raging across Northern California's wine country.  

According to a press release, the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau has partnered with San Francisco Travel and the Hotel Council of San Francisco to free up rooms for fire victims. A full list of participating hotels can be found on the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau's website and will be updated as additional venues participate.

The rooms are not free, but some hotels have chosen to adjust their rates or waive additional fees. Two hotels have indicated that they are pet friendly – a critical detail, as some evacuation shelters do not accept animals.

LIVE UPDATES: Death toll climbs, new fire in Marin, new evacuations

An evacuation shelter for large animals like livestock can be found at the Solano County Fairgrounds in Vallejo.

Alternately, the hospitality site Airbnb has activated its OpenHome program to help connect volunteer hosts with those in need of lodging.
