Monticello Fire Still Blazing, only 30% Contained

A fire that started Friday night in Alameda County near Monticello Dam has spread over 7,000 acres of Yolo and Solano counties and was only 30% contained as of Monday morning. Although the fire continues to burn, residents are returning to their homes.

Tinder-dry conditions and raised temperatures have exacerbated the blaze that is now threatening 40 structures, according to NBC Bay Area. So far, three people have been injured since the fire began. By 8 p.m. Sunday, evacuations were lifted for all residences on State Highway 128 between County Road 87 and Positas Road.

As of Monday morning, about 1,275 fire personnel were battling the blaze, according to Cal Fire officials. Heavy smoke is pervasive throughout the surrounding communities, Cal Fire said.
