PACIFICA, Calif. – A grass fire in northern California near Pacifica caused evacutions early Monday morning.

The fire broke out around 3:30 a.m. Monday, and nearly 100 people were evacuated as a precautionary measure by about 6:30 a.m., firefighters said.

Winds and hilly terrain were making it difficult for fire crews to fight the blaze. Nearly 60 firefighters are reportedly on-scene. The high wind is blowing the fire toward the ocean, firefighters said.
