A wildfire in the Medocino National Forest has grown significantly since Sunday, driven by hot, dry conditions.

The fire near Stonyford has now burned an estimated 2,500 acres. The Mill Valley, Mill Creek and Letts Lake campgrounds were all evacuated and closed over the weekend.

The fire started Saturday afternoon and is only 10 percent contained. Several roads around the fire have been closed.

The cause is still under investigation.
