A wildfire near Lake Berryessa has resulted in evacuations and the closure of a stretch Highway 128, according to officials with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

Dubbed the Monticello Fire, the western Yolo County blaze had burned more than 5,000 acres as of Saturday evening and was about 30 percent contained, according to the Cal Fire website.

The fire began shortly after 9:30 p.m. Friday, resulting in the closure of Highway 128 between Canyon Creek and Pleasants Valley Road. The fire activity increased significantly on Saturday as flames reached remote, rugged terrain that was difficult for firefighters to access.

Both the Canyon Creek Resort Campground and about 40 threatened homes at the Golden Bear Estates in Winters were evacuated as a result of the blaze, and an evacuation center was set up at the Winters Community Center to accommodate displaced residents.

Residents have reported smoke drifting over the communities of Davis and Woodland.

About 350 personnel have been assigned to the fire, including two units from the Davis and UC Davis fire departments that were dispatched to the scene at about 11 p.m. Friday, Davis fire Capt. Brian Lynch said.

Four air tankers, six bulldozers and three helicopters also were assisting in the firefighting effort, Cal Fire officials said. Other contributing agencies included the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, Yolo County Animal Services, California Highway Patrol, PG&E and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
