A fire has broken out in Lake County just one day after the nearby Pawnee Fire reached 100 percent containment. At 6:17 p.m., Cal Fire reported the fire was at 40 acres, but it has since grown to 65 acres and was at 25 percent containment by 7:25 p.m. The fire could possibly go up to 100 acres, Cal Fire spokesperson Will Powers said. This new blaze, which started Monday evening, is burning right next to where the Pawnee Fire ravaged more than 15,000 acres and destroyed 22 structures over about a two-week period. The Spring 2 Fire is burning at Pawnee Drive and New Long Valley Drive, northeast of Clearlake in Lake County, according to a post on Cal Fire's Twitter page
