One other building, and a home have sustained damage.

All evacuation orders, warnings and road closures were lifted Thursday in both Madera and Mariposa counties.

Last week, Madera County declared a local state of emergency. The order would help the county access more resources from the state and federal governments.

The cause of the wildfire is still under investigation.
