AVENAL, Calif. (AP) - A stubborn Central California wildfire has jumped across the Kings-Fresno County line while scorching roughly 40 square miles (103 kilometers).

No one has been injured.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection says a hunting cabin was destroyed. Five other structures remain threatened as flames burned in tall grass and brush.

Evacuation warnings are in place. No one has been forced to leave their home.

The fire started Sunday afternoon in vegetation and is roughly 35 percent contained.

More than 1,200 personnel have fought the blaze along with 16 helicopters, 97 fire engines, four air tankers and 25 dozers.

Firefighters are dealing with steep, rugged and at times inaccessible terrain.
