A fire in Yuba County that started as a scheduled burn, but jumped containment lines Thursday afternoon, is now 75 percent contained.

The fire, which has grown to approximately 180 acres, forced the evacuation of more than a dozen homes in the area of Oregon House, including residents on Regent Way, Vega Way, Emerald Way, Winding Way, Westwood Trail and Monte Verde.

The Red Cross set up an evacuation center at the Alcouffe Community Center, 9185 Marysville Road in Oregon House.
