Jackson, July 5 (AP) – Fireworks or barbecues may have been temporarily intercepted while chewing in the fourth-largest wildlife tour of California on July 5, 2014, officials said.
The electric fire in Sierra Nevada Gold on Monday afternoon tripled to 4.7 square miles (12.2 square kilometers) on Tuesday morning.

The blaze broke out in a crowded recreational area, forcing 85 to 100 people to take refuge in a Pacific gas and electric computer during the festival, said Amador County Sheriff Gary Redman. He later said that they were all displaced.
Compulsory evacuation orders and warnings were issued, injuring about 500 people in Amador County and between 300 and 400 in Calaverras County, Redman said.

Redman said the cause of the blaze was unknown, but it started near the Volks Beach River in the North Fork Mokelomene River. He said that fireworks or barbecues could be the cause.
One of the firefighters from the local fire department suffered burns, Redman said.
Vox Beach is 55 miles (89 km) east of Sacramento in the heart of the Sierra Nevada region in the mid-1800s.
