ORINDA, Calif. —
Firefighters controlled a 3-acre brush fire that sparked in Orinda Thursday afternoon, fire officials said.
The fire was reported at 4:20 p.m. in the Lost Valley area of Orinda and was approximately 2 acres as of 4:37 p.m., according to the Moraga-Orinda Fire District.
It grew to about 3 acres before firefighters got it under control about an hour later, interim fire Chief Stephen Healy said.
While the smoke may have startled residents, he said the fire was "pretty routine" and never threatened any structures.
No one was injured.
