Illegal fireworks may have sparked a large grass fire in the Oakland hills, according to investigators.

The fire broke out in Joaquin Miller Park on Castle Drive late Thursday night.

Crews found a herd of goats when they got there, but none of the animals were hurt.

Firefighters put out the fire at 4 a.m. Friday morning. It burned about 2.5 acres.

A smaller fire in the area also destroyed a cabin at a Girl Scout camp.

Crews continued checking for hot spots on Friday.
