Monday morning the Valley Fire is listed in southern Lake County, California as consuming 61,000 acres and only 5% contained. The Valley Fire, northwest of Sacramento, erupted early Saturday afternoon and rapidly burned through brush and trees dried out from several years of drought, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, or CalFire. The fire spread quickly, growing from 50 acres to 400 acres just before 4 p.m. (6 p.m. CT) Saturday, to 50,000 acres by Sunday afternoon, September 13, 2015.

One thousand firefighters were working to battle the Valley blaze as of Sunday morning with more responding. Four firefighters, part of a helicopter crew, received second-degree burns, and were transported to UC Davis Medical Center.
