    The Sawmill Fire, a wildfire burning in Sonoma County, ignited on Sunday, Sept. 25, 2016.

    The 1,500-acre wildfire burning in unincorporated Sonoma County since Sunday is 75 percent contained, a Cal Fire spokeswoman said.

    All mandatory evacuation orders and road closures had been lifted as of 6 p.m. Monday.

    The Sawmill Fire began around 11 a.m. Sunday and is located near Geysers and Geysers Resort roads, about 10 miles east of Cloverdale, Cal Fire spokeswoman Suzie Blankenship said.

    Twenty to 30 homes were evacuated on the Cloverdale side of Geysers Road from Pine Mountain Road to Geysers Resort Road.

    A shelter was set up at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church at 1402 University St. in Healdsburg, Sonoma County sheriff's officials said.

    Two minor injuries were reported, but no structures were damaged, Cal Fire officials said. The cause is under investigation.
