About 4:15 p.m., emergency dispatchers sent firefighters to a home fully involved in fire near Montezuma Way in Kelseyville by Clear Lake in Lake County. Soon afterward they reported that a second structure was now partially involved. And by 4:30 p.m., a third structure is reportedly on fire.

The Montezuma Fire, as the blaze is being called, is endangering multiple other homes.

“There are 10 possible structures threatened,” the Incident Commander reported at 4:38 p.m.

Soda Bay Road is being closed.
