More than 250 firefighters are battling a 500-acre fire near Bear Mountain in Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County. Investigators were trying to learn what sparked the blaze, which began burning in heavy brush Friday and spread west toward Alamo Mountain, said Juanita Freel, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Forestry Service. Fire danger is the most severe in a century in the national forest because of the four-year statewide drought, she said.

Wind-driven blazes scorched about 2,000 acres of brush- and timber-covered hills Sunday in rural Sonoma County and at least 700 acres in the Los Padres National Forest in Ventura County. The Sonoma County fire was burning out of control in a sparsely inhabited area about 13 miles east of Cloverdale, about 95 miles north of San Francisco.

Local fire officials may tighten rules on outdoor shooting ranges after stray bullets set off two major fires that cost taxpayers more than $1 million. A brush fire last week near Lake Piru and a forest fire in late June at Kings Campground in Los Padres National Forest together scorched more than 3,000 acres. The Piru fire started at a public shooting range, and the Kings fire was sparked by a target-shooter in a legal shooting area.
