At 2:17 pm Saturday, Contra Costa County Firefighters responded to a report of a vegetation fire behind Inland Marine on W 10th Street in the City of Antioch.
The fire was reportedly started by homeless behind the business who were seen fleeing from the scene prior to police and firefighter arrival. The small vegetation fire threatened several boats and trailers near the fire and it even began burning wheels of some of the trailers.
Staff at Inland Marine quickly moved some of the boats out of the way so fire crews could make quick access upon arrival.
Crews limited the fire to a little over 1/10 acre and was out by 2:45 pm. Aside from a fence that had to be cut for firefighters to make access, no other property was damaged.
