CLOVERDALE, Calif.- CAL FIRE said the Hiding Fire is at 75% containment and has burned around 50 acres.

The fire started Sunday around 7 p.m. south of Cloverdale but had its forward progress stopped by firefighters within the first couple of hours.

CAL FIRE said two buildings were burnt along with a few cars. A combination of fire engines, aircraft, crews, and bulldozers made up that quick response to help prevent any damage from happening to other structures in the area.

CAL FIRE is still investigating what started the fire, but know that it started near or on a structure in a small valley between the intersection of Dale Ln. and Panther Rd.

Some people in the area were evacuated but began returning home this morning. 

The CAL FIRE Incident Commander for the Hiding Fire, Jim Davis, told Action News Now if there was any danger of the fire spreading anymore today.

"I don’t anticipate that as far as any threats right now, we’re looking pretty good," said Davis. "I think that we’ll have the crews out here all day working on it, and if there were a spot to get out we should get on it pretty quickly."

A group of three eight fire engines, three fire crews, and three water tenders are in the area to mop up the scene. Fire crews will continue their mop-up efforts throughout today and tonight to ensure no spot fires spark up.

PG&E will also be in the area taking down some of their power lines.
