Firefighters battled a growing vegetation fire early Tuesday that has forced residents near Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains to evacuate their homes, authorities said. It quickly grew to 125 acres after sparking around 10:30 p.m. Monday as a structure fire, spreading to the wilderness around it, as ABC 7 reports, and prompting a door-to-door evacuation effort early Tuesday morning that includes the roads listed below.

According to California Highway Patrol officials, an evacuation center is open at Boulder Creek Elementary School at 400 W. Lomond St.in Boulder Creek.

CalFire says about 30 different crews have responded to the fire, including agencies from Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Clara counties.

One firefighter has already been injured after falling 50 feet down a ravine. "This is very steep, rugged terrain with hard access". He has a broken wrist and cuts on his face. "All of Bear Creek Road and anything connected to that road has been closed".

"We have crews actively working on this now", Cal Fire spokeswoman Angela Bernheisel told KTVU.
