A wildfire broke out Wednesday afternoon in Schellville, southeast of the city of Sonoma. Located on the east side of Freemont Drive, near the intersection of Napa Road, the Freemont fire grew from about a half-acre to 40-plus acres in under an hour. According to the Watch Duty fire alert app, an agressive air attack and incoming engines from multiple agencies helped get an initial handle on the blaze. It spread at a moderate rate, but no houses or other structures were threatened. 
 
By 5 p.m., firefighters had stopped forward progress at 116 acres. No structures were burned and no evacuations called. Crews will be there throughout the evening mopping up.
