    One home was destroyed and several other structures were damaged by a wildfire on Friday afternoon in Cordelia, California, near San Francisco.

    Part of Interstate 680 was closed in Solano County as a result of the fire but later reopened, ABC 7 News in San Francisco reported.

    The fire was reported about 3:45 p.m. PDT Friday.

    Winds were picking up at the time of the fire out of the southwest between 15 and 20 mph, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Lada said.

    "There were stronger gusts up to 25 mph around 5 p.m. after the fire started," Lada said.

    Low humidity around 20 percent was also an issue for firefighters.

    The cause of the fire, which went to a five-alarm response, remained under investigation, ABC 7 News reported.
