Evacuations are taking place along Bragdon Way outside of Clayton due to a 100 acre fire on Marsh Creek Rd.

Marsh Creek will be shut down for at least the next 8 hours, according to the CHP. Crews from all around the North State are on their way to help fight this blaze, which was started by downed wires after a vehicle collision around 10pm on Friday night.
