Mandatory evacuations were ordered Tuesday morning for Santa Cruz mountain residents living near the Loma Fire, which had charred at least 1,500 acres and was 5 percent contained early in the morning.

Cal Fire officials worried the fire was headed that way. On Monday, the Santa Clara County Sheriff ordered residents to evacuate along Summit Road, Mount Madonna Road and Croy Ridge Road.
