MODESTO (AP) — Firefighters are battling two wildfires in Northern and Central California that are sending residents fleeing from their homes.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says a 1000-acre blaze sparked Sunday afternoon near Lake McClure, a reservoir about 50 miles east of Modesto, is threatening homes in a rural area.

Mariposa County Sheriff’s officials ordered an evacuation order for an unknown number of homes in the Hunters Valley area two miles east of the lake.
