Firefighters in Northern California were battling the latest wildfire east of Sacramento Monday in a recreational area filled with July 4th festivities, forcing many to evacuate.

As the fire spread rapidly, 85 to 100 people vacationing in the area’s riverfront recreation area, known as Vaux Beach, should be taken to nearby Pacific Gas and Electric Company facilities, Amador County Sheriff Gary Redman said.

Those people were safe at the facility Monday night, but could not leave due to a fire hazard, Redman said.

“We can’t get in there. The fire can’t get in there,” Redman told the Associated Press late Monday. “The trees keep falling. The whole place is on fire.”

By 7 p.m. Monday, the fire in Amador County had quickly spread to 959 acres (388 hectares), according to Cal Fire. The fire agency said on Twitter a few hours ago that the fire was 75 acres (30 hectares) in size and was “burning at a dangerous rate of spreading to dry grass.”

Redman said the fire had slowed down by 10pm on Monday night and hoped those trapped in the PG and E facilities would not have to stay overnight. He said firefighters were working to clear the way for the facility so that buses or patrol vehicles could be brought in to evacuate people.

Redman said about 500 other people have been affected by the mandatory and recommended migration.

The cause of the fire was not immediately known, but it was reported in the Vokes Beach area. He said he could suggest fireworks or barbecue as a possible reason.

Vox Beach is 55 miles (89 kilometers) east of Sacramento.
