After an investigation, CAL FIRE law enforcement determined the cause of the 7,500- acre El Dorado Fire to be the result of a smoke-generating pyrotechnic device, used during a gender reveal party. More details to come, as the investigation continues.
Hundreds of local residents remain evacuated from their homes in the rapidly-growing fire. As of 8:20 p.m., the fire is at 5% containment.
There are at least two structures that have burned in the fire.
