As of 7:30 p.m. Monday, the fire had burned 215 acres, but Cal Fire could not immediately comment Tuesday on how much of the blaze was contained. The site is about 30 miles west of the Aero Fire, which is at 95% containment after burning 5,200 acres.  

Though lighting was recently reported all around the area covered by the Cal Fire Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit, the cause of the fire remains unknown and is under investigation by Cal Fire.

Dubbed the 1-2 Fire, multiple surrounding fire agencies have collaborated to battle it, according to Cal Fire.
