The Coyote Fire in Lake County on Friday has grown to 100 acres, Cal Fire officials say. 

The vegetation fire started on Friday just after 5 p.m. Cal Fire's Sonoma-Lake-Napa unit is responding and says it was sparked by a car fire. Just before 10 p.m., officials said the fire was 60% contained. 

As many as 50 structures were threatened, but Cal Fire did not confirm that any had been destroyed or damaged. 

The fire is affecting traffic on Highway 29 just north of Hidden Valley Lake near Spruce Grove Road. Crews are at the scene where evacuation orders have been reduced to evacuation warnings, according to the Lake County Sheriff's Department. 

Conestoga Road will remain closed to vehicle traffic as it is blocked with fire personnel and vehicles, the sheriff's department said. 

If you are traveling in the area, expect delays and use caution.
