The El Dorado County Sheriff's Office says people are being let back in their homes after a fire closed a portion of Highway 50 between Shingle Springs and Placerville. 

Caltrans says Highway 50 has been reopened as of Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies say homes were evacuated near Studebaker Road. 

The 16-acre Greenstone Fire was located between Red Hawk Parkway and Greenstone. 

It's now 100% contained. 

CAL FIRE says the incident started as a car fire then spread to nearby brush.
