A fire burning in Sonoma County, #SawMillFire, has now burned upwards of 1,500 acres. Here are 5 shocking photos of the fire that you need to see.

The Sawmill fire reportedly burned roughly 500 acres before 6 pm and then quickly grew to over 1,500. At least 36 homes have been evacuated since the fire began burning. The area is currently under red flag warning.

Although it isn’t yet clear how the fire started, crews seem to have the upper hand. As ABC News reports, on Sunday the fire was only 10% contained.

Cal Fire spokesperson Amy Head said,

“It was really gusty and things seemed to calm down just a little bit, which is helping firefighters, but we are still not out of the woods with how dry it is and the past five years of drought conditions.”
