Firefighters are battling a wildfire in the area.

A wildfire in Norther California's Yolo County has grown to 32,500 acres and crossed into neighboring Napa County, fire authorities said.

Julie Malingowski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Grand Junction, said weather conditions this week will continue to be hot and dry, creating continued risk of fire danger and fire spread.

Images on social media showed an eerie yellow smoke over the bay city as the fire continued to burn.

"What's unusual about this fire is really just the intensity of the fire at this particular point in the summer", Anthony said.

"A county the size of Madison requires a very conjoined effort and yesterday was a prime example of multiple agencies working together for the benefit of its citizens", read a Facebook post from the Madison County Fire Department.

"It's a fire year now", Anthony said.

San Luis Valley Emergency tweeted Monday night that 104 homes have been destroyed so far by the Spring Fire burning east of Fort Garland.

The blaze threatened about 700 homes, a local NBC affiliate reported on Monday, as authorities issued evacuation orders and advisories to hundreds of residents.

The fourth spot is held by the Missionary Ridge Fire, which ripped through 71,739 acres, also north of Durango. Roughly 75 firefighters from numerous mountain firefighting departments are battling the fire along with a single helicopter crew, he said.

In Utah, Jason Curry of the Division of Forest, Fire and State Lands said fire has scorched about 27 square kilometres near Strawberry Reservoir.

A wildfire near Warm Springs has burned about 800 acres and is estimated to be about 50 percent contained Monday evening. The Pawnee Fire broke out more than a week ago and has consumed about 14,700 acres.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has been involved in the investigation into the fire.

About 500 firefighters have worked to contain the flames since the fire began Wednesday.

Wilson said the mill fire has been burning since past year in areas of sawdust and bark where firefighters typically don't go because of associated hazards.
