The fire has contributed to at least one death. An elderly woman died of a heart attack while evacuating. Five firefighters have been hurt.
Elsewhere, firefighters have about three-quarters of a 600-acre wildfire under control in Santa Cruz County.
Farther south, another wildfire has scorched nearly 25,000 acres in the Los Padres National Forest in Monterey County. It was nearly 40 percent contained yesterday.
The causes of all the blazes remain under investigation.
