At 4:15 pm Saturday, the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District Firefighters were dispatched to a report of a vegetation fire off Lone Tree Way in the City of Brentwood.
The fire was located in the 30 block of Double K Road where they located a lawnmower on fire in a field with a quarter acre on fire. Engine 53 quickly arrived on scene and sprayed down a fence which was nearly on fire and protected several homes.
No injuries or damages were reported other than a few fence posts.
The East Contra Costa Fire Protection District reminds people to mow lawns or fields in the morning when temperatures are cooler explained Ross Macumber.
