A wildfire that broke Monday in Tuolumne County has blackened 930 acres. The Marshes Fire is burning near Highway 49 and Marshes Flat Road, north of Don Pedro Reservoir. 

There are mandatory evacuation orders for the Moccasin Estate subdivision and advisory evacuations for the Hetch Hetchy area.

Another wildfire that started Monday, the Tobin Fire, has burned 375 acres near Highway 70 in the Plumas National Forest. 

Meanwhile, more residents have been ordered from their homes as a growing wildfire threatens remote communities in California's Santa Cruz Mountains.

Cal Fire said Tuesday that the blaze in a rugged area about 30 miles south of San Jose has destroyed one home and charred more than 1,085 acres of dry brush and timber.

Hundreds were evacuated after the fire broke out Monday amid a heat wave, and more residents were ordered to leave as the flames spread overnight. Officials didn't say how many homes are affected.

The Loma Fire, which is now 5 percent contained, sparked on the southern edge of Santa Clara County is also threatening television and radio towers.

Meanwhile to the north, evacuation orders were lifted as crews gained control over a fire that threatened homes and The Geysers geothermal complex in Sonoma County. The Sawmill Fire is now 1,500 acres and is 55 percent contained.
