Evacuations were ordered as dry, hot winds fuelled a wildfire burning out of control Sunday in rural Northern California, sending smoke some 120 kilometres south into the San Francisco Bay Area. But the marine layer kept most of the sooty air pollution up at higher elevations.

However, any lingering smoke from the fires could be pushed out of the region by some westerly winds on Monday, according to Anna Schneider of the National Weather Service in Monterey.

"Usually with a fire, we can chase it". "It's fortunate. It's helping us".

Gabe Lauderbale, a spokesman with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, said Monday that hot temperatures and gusty winds are contributing to the fast spread of the blaze in sparsely populated areas of Yolo and Napa counties. Despite burning more than 72 miles (115.8 km) away, smoke from the blazes has made them feel ever present in the Bay Area. Twenty-two structures have been destroyed by the fire.

The Spring Fire has burned 78,941 acres and was five percent contained as of Tuesday morning. The Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District, which put out the alert, recommended that residents of those areas reduce outdoor activity this week, particularly pregnant woman, the elderly, young children and those with respiratory illnesses such as heart or lung disease and asthma.
