At least 500 personnel are working the Clayton Fire in Lake County, with four helicopters, three airtankers and 43 fire engines. The fire began just after 5 p.m. Saturday and has quickly charred through 2,000 acres driven by "low humidity and gusty winds...add drought-stricken vegetation, and it’s the perfect combination for a fast-moving wildfire," said Cal Fire spokesman Daniel Berlant.
