GUINDA, Calif. (AP) - Crews are making progress against a Northern California wildfire that threatens hundreds of buildings but say wind and dry vegetation could still fuel the blaze.

California officials said the fire in rural counties northwest of Sacramento was 25 percent contained as of Wednesday morning. That's up from 15 percent the previous day.

It has burned through 129 square miles after igniting Saturday. Some areas have been under evacuation orders for days.

It's among the massive wildfires burning in the Western United States and putting some Fourth of July plans on hold.
