POPE VALLEY, Calif. –  Fire crews were battling a surging wildfire in rural Northern California that has burned more than 4 square miles, damaged five structures and prompted mandatory evacuations.
The fire began just after noon on Tuesday along Butts Canyon Road, northeast of Calistoga in Napa County, reported. It spiked to 2,700 acres by late Tuesday.
Officials say state firefighters and crews from Napa, Lake and Solano counties spent the day working in 90-degree weather as they contained 30 percent of the fire.
McCambridge says several residents living in two communities have been evacuated because nearly 200 homes are threatened.
Five structures have also been damaged, but it wasn't immediately clear whether they were homes or other buildings.
No injuries have been reported. The cause of the fire hasn't been found.

An internal audit from the California Department of Motor Vehicles released Monday shows about 1,500 customers may have been improperly registered to vote.

“Approximately 1,500 customers may have been registered to vote in error,” the DMV wrote in a letter Monday to the Secretary of State’s Office. “This error has been corrected and is separate from the processing error we notified you about in writing on September 5.” Non-citizens are among the affected customers, according to Jessica Gonzalez, a DMV spokeswoman.
