Brush fire near Concord burns 100 acres, now contained, CAL FIRE says

CONCORD, Calif. (KGO) -- A two-alarm grass fire reported at about 5 p.m. Saturday near East Olivera and Willow Pass Roads near the former Concord Naval Weapons Station is now 100 percent contained at about 100 acres, CAL FIRE reported Sunday morning.

There were no reports of any injuries or damaged structures in the fire, which was largely contained by 8 p.m. Saturday. The fire did come close to homes on Concord's far east end.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, but firefighters said it was aided by low humidity and, especially, by sustained strong winds.
