ECCFPD: Birds on Power Lines Cause Vegetation Fire in Oakley


At 5:05 pm Saturday evening, East Contra Costa Fire Protection District crews responded to a vegetation fire reported on Jersey Island Road in Oakley. There were reports of smoke coming near an abandoned barn about a mile out from Engine 94. Upon arrival, crews located the fire and reported there was down power wires.  The fire was put out quickly and handled without incident as a dirt path helped control the fire.

The apparent cause of the fire was due to a bird on the wires. Crews were on scene for 1-hour and 34-minutes.
