A fire is burning in a remote area of Placer County near the town of Foresthill.

It’s happening in an area called Portuguese Point, which is north of Yankee Jims Road, according to a Cal Fire spokesperson. It was caused by a lightning strike and has burned between 1 to 1.5 acres.

Because the fire is in such a remote area, it took crews a longer than usual to arrive.

There is no word yet on containment of the fire.
