Downed power lines sparked a small grass fire that briefly forced the evacuation of ten homes this afternoon in Milpitas.

16 homes in the Glacier Drive and Acadia Avenue neighborhoods lost power when the lines went down at about 2:30 p.m.

PG&E hasn't said what caused the power lines to fall, but it was quite windy when it happened.
