    Huge fire in Santa Cruz mountains


    (05-22) 11:13 PDT GILROY -- An out-of-control, wind-blown wildfire is burning in the Santa Cruz Mountains west of Gilroy, burning at least 10 structures and forcing the evacuation of residents, authorities said.

    The Summit Fire was reported about 5:30 a.m. and has burned at least 2,000 acres north of Highway 152 around the border of Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties, according to officials with the state Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and other agencies.

    Fog, Calmer Winds Helping Santa Cruz Fire Fighters


    By dawn, the blaze was 20 percent contained after scorching 3,100 acres. The fire was still growing, but not significantly, said Joe Waterman, a Cal Fire incident commander.

    "Once the marine layer moves back out, activity will pick up a little bit," Waterman said. "We have a lot of forces mobilized, and we are optimistic we'll be able to hold it today."

    About 1,400 residents remained under evacuation orders -- more than 300 of them mandatory -- while more than 900 firefighters and a swarm of tanker planes and helicopters continued dousing the area. More fire personnel were on their way, Waterman said.
