If you decide to drive south to San Francisco, you need to check the CalFire website for current wildfire conditions. Choose your driving route based on incident locations. It has to be said, you need to give yourself lots of time to drive anywhere in the event you encounter detours.

AND since you (OP) isn't familiar with the area in the first place a mistake could take you into even more danger.

Presently Google Maps shows that the fire perimeter has crossed Hwy 199 as of lat night, and Hwy 96 is also impacted. Basically, you can't get there without heading south on 101 at least to Eureka anyways.

At the moment US101 to the south will get you all the way to San Francisco.

You can check the Caltrans website for other traffic situations (such as lane closures and weather) by entering the Highway number. That was the site I relied on to plan my routes to the Bay Area recently.
