Strong winds fanned the flames in Contra Costa County Thursday evening. The fire spread fast, but firefighters worked faster.

More than 190 acres were scorched, but firefighters gained the upper hand and by late Thursday evening, the fire was contained.

The wind-driven flames raced across grassland in a rural part of Contra Costa County off Collier Canyon Road beginning around 5:15 p.m. Sixty firefighters from four different agencies responded.

No homes or structures were damaged.
