On Sunday, the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District was dispatched to a report of a vegetation fire in the area of W Leland Road and at John Henry Johnson Pkwy threatening a home.
Upon arrival, crews located a vegetation fire approximently 1/4 acre in size and was threatening an abandoned structure.
A second alarm unit was requested so they could have both structure protection and vegetation responses. Within 30-minutes the fire grew to a little over an acre.
By 7:15 pm, the vegetation fire was contained to approximently 5 acres with a structure that was damaged. Crews were to remain on scene overnight due to wind and more mop up was expected Monday. The cause of the fire was not known.
