On Tuesday night, Contra Costa County Fire Protection District firefighters responded to three vegetation fires in the City of Antioch and City of Pittsburg areas.

At 9:38 pm, they responded to the 1300 block of W. 18th Street for grass and a fence on fire.  At 11:45 pm, they responded to the 1600 block of Sycamore Avenue where a tall palm tree had caught fire along the railroad tracks. At 11:54 pm, they responded in Pittsburg off of the Pittsburg Antioch Highway, West of Auto Center drive.

No other information was provided.


  1. No one here has any consideration for their neighbors. The constant fireworks, loud music, and dangerous driving is here to stay. Any decent person thinking of moving to Antioch – run far away and don’t look back.

    • So true! Our 100% residential street is now being used as a race tract to practice for some big event. More and more car crashes on Hwy 4 (both directions). I know a lot of people who are now arming themselves, especially if they are even taking a short trip to the store. Police response is very slow or none at all. We are responsible for our own safety. The police seem to be just a reporting agency these days and now the idiots in charge want to defund them.
