SANTA CRUZ COUNTY, Calif. (KION-TV) -- Cal Fire CZU is working on a wildfire that started in the Santa Cruz mountains Saturday afternoon.

It's being called the Rock Fire and it's burning near Highway 17 and Hutchinson Road in Upper Zayante.

As of 5:30 p.m. the fire is 50% contained, with crews expected to be out in the area for another 4 to 6 hours.
