At 3:24 am, Contra Costa County Fire was dispatched to a report of a vegetation fire near the Antioch Marina along the railroad tracks.
Crews were able to work to limit the vegetation fire to approximately 15-acres after the fire was started by homeless. The incident also burned through a power pole which if it goes down, would cause a large power outage in the city. It also creates a life safety issue for firefighters on scene — PG&E is on scene.
As of 8:00 am, crews had the fire under control and were working to clean up the area while Crew 12 will be on scene most of the day creating a fire break and mop up duties.
