A wildfire continues to burn out of control in Lake County, but fire officials have now lifted mandatory evacuations.

The Scotts fire is burning near the Blue Lakes area on Cow Mountain, west of Scotts Valley Road and eight miles east of Ukiah. The fire started Friday afternoon and spread quickly. It has burned more than 1,600 acres and is 5 percent contained.

Firefighters plan to bring in air tankers from Sonoma County on Saturday because the Ukiah airbase is low on retardant.
