The Buckaroo fire burned nearly 25 acres in Placerville onThursday. By late evening, the fire was 35 percent contained.

Homeowner Steven Gregory, who lives in one of the 60 homes near Hanks Exchange Road told FOX40 he was concerned the fire would move towards his house.

"It looked like it was moving fast," Gregory told FOX40 Thursday night. "I think it was sparked by lightening."

Although multiple residents reported intense thunder and lightening Thursday afternoon around the same time the fire started, a Cal Fire spokesperson could not confirm the exact cause of the fire.

Crews worked into the night Thursday to put our embers within the perimeter of the fire.
