The fire started under the Mt. Barnabe fire lookout before 8 p.m. Monday and was threatening 20 to 30 structures, according to Marin County Fire officials.

By 12:45 a.m., officials said they had the fire 10 percent contained and were making good progress in the firefight with bulldozers, hand crews, water tenders and engines.
