Cal Fire officials said the fire is not threatening structures.

A fire at the north gate of Lake Wildwood that was 2 acres in size, with the potential for 5, sprung up around 3:44 p.m. Monday, according to Cal Fire public information officer Mary Eldridge.

“Air resources are already over the fire and resources are already on scene,” she said.

A Cal Fire tweet stated that it had its first units on the scene reporting the fire, near Penn Valley, which was covering 2 of grass and brush.

There is no structure threat, according to Eldridge, who said Cal Fire officials are putting water on the fire in real time, limiting its advance.
