COLLINSVILLE (AP) - A fire tore through a Northern California community, destroying eight homes and damaging three more.

Chief Joe Rosewall of the Montezuma Fire District in Solano County said that nobody was injured in the Friday afternoon blaze in the small community of Collinsville, about 60 miles east of San Francisco.

Rosewall says the fire is out, but 25 residents have been displaced and it caused an estimated $2.5 million in damage.

State fire officials say they are battling several fires throughout California and expect the dry conditions and the July 4 holiday weekend to keep them busy.
