A grass fire burning in Fairfield is now almost fully contained. The fire broke out around 4 p.m. at Central Plaza and Pittman Road and briefly closed down a part of nearby Cordelia Road.

The fire has burned about 100 acres and crews say they were fortunate that relatively light winds blew smoke away from nearby housing.

No one was injured and no structures have burned. The cause is still under investigation.
