The Sand Fire in California’s Amador County, about 45 miles east of Sacramento, increased in intensity on a second day. It was burning over 4000 acres and was 20 percent contained as of 8:15pm on July 26, according to CalFire. The fast-moving fire, which began at 4:34pm on July 25, has caused the evacuation of hundreds of people, including those in River Pines Estates and along Sand Ridge Road. Firefighting efforts have been hampered by rugged terrain, dry vegetation and oak trees fueling the fire. Credit: YouTube/Kirsty Tatterson less
