An improperly installed electric livestock fence sparked a wildfire that has burned more than 90,000 acres in Northern California, state fire officials announced Wednesday.

The fence sparked the County Fire on June 30 in Yolo County. It spread to Napa County and burned 20 structures. Cal Fire said it had the fire 86 percent contained and lifted all evacuation orders as of Wednesday afternoon.

Klamathon Fire

Also in Northern California, firefighters were battling the Klamathon Fire, which spans the California-Oregon border. The 36,500-acre fire was 60 percent contained as of Wednesday morning.

The fire caused one death and three injuries since it was sparked Thursday. It destroyed 82 structures.

Officials issued evacuation warnings for the Copco Lake Area in California and parts of Jackson County in Oregon.

Georges Fire

The Georges Fire in Inyo County stayed at about 2,500 acres Wednesday, but fire officials increased its containment to 30 percent.

The Inyo National Forest said it planned to reopen the Whitney Portal Road to campgrounds, residences and the Whitney Portal Store. Lightning caused the blaze, Cal Fire said.

Los Angeles area

Firefighters fully contained the Creek and Canyon fires, as well as a brush fire that closed down Griffith Observatory on Tuesday.

The Valley Fire remained at 1,348 acres and was 24 percent containment while the 100-acre Box Fire was 90 percent contained.
