Fire crews are close to corralling a wildland fire in the Pilot Hill area of El Dorado County that prompted voluntary evacuations for some residents of the rural area.
What has been dubbed the Salmon fire has burned 108 acres and was reported 90 percent contained this evening with full containment expected by midnight.
The fire was reported at 2:23 p.m. in the area of Salmon Falls and Gallagher roads, said Teri Mizuhara, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection's Amador-El Dorado Unit. She said some structures were threatened.
Sgt. Phil Chovanec of the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department said a voluntary evacuation was in effect this afternoon for residents of Equestrian Way and Hound Hollow Road.
Mizuhara said the fire was burning in an area of oak woodlands.
Along with Cal Fire, crews from the El Dorado Hills Fire Department, El Dorado County Fire District and the U.S. Forest Service are on scene with engines and water tenders. Aircraft also are being used to fight the fire, Mizuhara said.
