Fire crews are responding to fire in the Foresthill area.

Thick smoke is visible from the grass and vegetation fire near Big Dipper and Shirt Tail Canyon roads up in Placer County.

Officials believe the fire may have been started by a lightning strike.

Air tankers have made some water drops over the blaze, as other firefighters battle the fire on the ground.

The Foresthill Fire does not appear to be growing at a very rapid rate, only growing to a couple of acres.
