Berryessa-area fire up to 72500 acres

The Pawnee Fire burns Tuesday near Clearlake California

Cal Fire is also still battling the Pawnee Fire in Lake County, which was 85 percent contained as of Tuesday evening.

The fire was reportedly started by people shooting tracer rounds - despite a Stage 2 fire ban in the county.

Mandatory evacuations remain in place between Monticello Dam and Pleasants Valley Road by Highway 128, west of Highway 16 to Berryessa Knoxville Road, south of County Road 40 and north of County Road 53.

"We just got confirmation last night that the house was completely gone".

Still, firefighters have jumped containment on this fire by 10% on Tuesday, up to 15% from 5% in the morning.

Firefighters from the Basalt and Rural Fire Protection District were paged to the Lake Christine shooting rage and found a wildfire burning up a hillside on the north end of the shooting range, Carbondale Fire said in a news release.

A number of evacuations and road closures are in effect in the area. "You're going to see folks in fire camp that have been bounced from fire to fire to fire".

"There's a lot of history and memories that go into this cabin", said Lewis, 44, of Magna, Utah.

The massive blaze was choking skies with ash and smoke, prompting some officials to cancel Fourth of July fireworks shows and urge people to stay indoors to protect themselves from the unhealthy air. Brown said the blaze started Saturday and is surging through rugged terrain northwest of Sacramento amid hot and dry weather.

Hundreds of residents on the fire's southern edge have been told that they may have to evacuate their homes if the blaze spreads. "So what that means is everything is so dry, just tinder dry, we're seeing fuel moistures, that's the moisture content within the live shrubbery and grasses, that are where they should be September, October, very late summer".

The United States is in the midst of an unusually active fire season, with the risk significantly above normal for many western states, according to federal forecasters. "But it's still hampering our efforts and it's an area of concern", he said.

In Arizona, large swaths of national forests and state trust land have been closed since before Memorial Day.

The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad said the fire destroyed its outdoor concert stage and it is raising money to rebuild it.
