New fire, mandatory evacuations in Santa Cruz mountains in Boulder Creek

A fire burning in Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz mountains prompted evacuations early on Tuesday

It quickly grew to 125 acres after sparking around 10:30 p.m. Monday as a structure fire, spreading to the wilderness around it, as ABC 7 reports, and prompting a door-to-door evacuation effort early Tuesday morning that includes the roads listed below. One fell into a ravine battling the blaze.

A wildfire burning in the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California has forced at least 150 residents to evacuate on Tuesday. Cal Fire officials said they are hoping calm winds and humidity will help them put out the fire. California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection Assistant Chief Rob Sherman told NBC KCRA 3 News that evacuation orders have been issued for residents living on Deer Creek Road, Rons Road, Dons Road, Lost Valley Road, Favre Ridge and Oak Ridge.

Two firefighters have suffered non-life-threatening injuries, Cal Fire said.

Florida Prepares for White Rally with State of Emergency
During the violent protests in Charlottesville , a similar state of emergency was declared by Virginia's governor. No campus group invited Spencer to speak, and the university is not hosting or sponsoring the event.

Evacuation centers have been opened up at Lakeside Elementary School in Los Gatos and the Zayante Fire station in Felton. That person had to be taken out from battling the fire due to smoke inhalation.

"The idea is to hit it pretty hard with aircraft and hit it with ground resources at the same time", he said to KCRA. Officials continued the search for dozens of missing people, and fire crews gained additional ground on the deadly blazes that have scorched more than 210,000 acres and killed at least 41. The dirt roads in the area also are very narrow, Sherman said.

The Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Office is maintaining a presence in the area for security, said Sgt. Chris Clark.
