CLAYTON, Calif. (AP) — A wildfire burning in a San Francisco Bay Area wilderness park has prompted a smoke advisory for three counties.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District said residents in parts of Contra Costa, Alameda and Santa Clara counties should take precautions Monday, including setting air conditioning units and car vent systems to recirculate.

Elderly people, children and those with respiratory illnesses were advised to be particularly careful.

The fire in Mt. Diablo State Park has burned 1,500 acres. It is 10 percent contained.

About 100 homes have been evacuated.
