Crews say they made significant progress fighting the Box Creek Fire Sunday, and it stands at about 2,000 acres Monday. It's about five miles northwest of Greenwich.
Summer homes and cabins have been evacuated, and roads and trails in the area have been closed.
The Box Creek Fire began in mid-May as a prescribed burn in Fishlake National Forest by the U.S. Forest Service, but high winds caused it to grow last week.
More than 400 people are participating in the firefighting effort.
