VACAVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say three homes and several other structures were destroyed in a small wildfire near Vacaville in Northern California.

The California Department of Fire and Forestry says the wind-driven fire was reported shortly after 11 a.m. Saturday and quickly grew to 55 acres.

Department spokeswoman Lynne Tolmachoff says the fire on the edge of a subdivision destroyed three homes, numerous outbuildings and two RV's.

The area north of Vacaville, a city 30 miles southwest of Sacramento, was under a red flag warning of fire weather conditions, including up to 30 mph wind gusts.

The fire is 65 percent contained. Its cause is under investigation.
