Evacuations ordered on Corbett Creek Road.

CAL FIRE has issued evacuation orders for residents on Corbett Creek Road, where the Gaines Fire is burning. Two homes are affected at this time. Mariposa County Sheriff's deputies and animal control officers are in the area to help families get themselves and their livestock out. Livestock will be moved to the Mariposa County Fairgrounds. Just before the evacuation order came through, CAL FIRE Prevention Specialist Karen Guillemin said firefighters are "making progress" in the Gaines Fire. Guillemin said 125 acres have burned in the blaze that started about 12:45 p.m. Other structures are threatened, and homeowners in the area have been notified of pending danger.
