At 8:16 pm Friday, Contra Costa County Units responded to a vegetation fire that threatened the Maya Cinemas in Pittsburg.
Units arrived on scene to find grass, brush and trees on fire in a field behind the Maya Cinemas and immediately went tactical for structure protection. Additional units were requested, however, were later cancelled. Although the fire created a ton of smoke, the fire was under control within 15-minutes and the building suffered no damaged beside some smoke which got into the hall.
The fire is being labeled as a “suspicious” fire at this time and no further information has been provided.
