With firefighters still working to contain the deadly, destructive North Bay wildfires, Cal Fire is tackling a blaze that erupted Monday night in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
More than 900 firefighters are battling the Bear Fire in a rugged stretch of country between Boulder Creek and Lexington Reservoir. The blaze began about 10:30 p.m. Monday with a structure fire that spread into the adjacent brush and trees. The fire has burned about 320 acres and is 40 percent contained, Cal Fire reported.
At least four structures have been lost to the blaze, Cal Fire said.
