All evacuation orders have been lifted stemming from a four alarm brush fire in the community of Cordelia in Solano County on Tuesday.

The fire broke out in the area of Thomasson Lane and Cordelia Road in the Nelson Hill neighborhood near Fairfield. 

Heavy smoke could be seen coming from the area. 

At about 12:20 p.m., the Solano County Sheriff's Office issued an evacuation order for all residents from 2490 Cordelia Rd, east to Thomasson Lane and all residents on Thomasson Lane.

"This means there is an immediate threat to life. This is a lawful order to LEAVE NOW," the county Office of Emergency Services (OES) said.  

That order was later downgraded to an evacuation warning. Shortly before 3:00 p.m. OES officials alerted residents that the warning was also lifted and all roads in the area had been reopened.  

CAL FIRE's Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit assisted local agencies in putting out the flames.

The Vallejo Fire Department also offered mutual aid said that flames scorched 22 acres before crews managed to stop forward progress of the wildfire.
