Brush fire prompts evacuations in Tuolumne County

A bushfire burning near small communities in the Sierra Nevada foothills prompted several evacuation orders Thursday night.

The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office said the fire started near Camp Hope, which is near Jamestown and Sonora.

Mandatory evacuation orders were in place for North Drive, Fairway, Outlook Drive, Martha Lane, Golden Dove, Silver Pine and Circle Lane, MPs said.

There were also several evacuation warnings as well as a Stockton Road road closure from Highway 108 to Ponderosa Way, MPs said.

An evacuation center has been set up at the Sonora Fairgrounds, lawmakers said.

The Times could not immediately reach officials from the Tuolumne County Fire Department or the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection for more information about the fire.

pictures posted on Twitter showed the blaze, reportedly dubbed the Woods Fire, burning near a small town.
