NOVATO, Calif. —
A greenhouse was destroyed in a vegetation fire in Novato Tuesday afternoon, a Marin County fire battalion chief said.
A resident in the Indian Valley area who saw smoke coming from a hillside in the west reported the fire at 1:11 p.m., Marin County fire Battalion Chief Mike Giannini said.
The fire was found burning several miles west of U.S. Highway 101 off Cabro Ridge. Firefighters attacked it on the ground and with air tankers dropping retardant.
The fire was prevented from spreading shortly after 2 p.m, and declared contained just before 3 p.m., Giannini said.
Three acres were charred in the blaze, Giannini said, which threatened homes in the area but spread to no inhabited structures, but did destroy a greenhouse.
No evacuations were ordered and no injuries were reported, he said. Cal Fire and fire departments from Marinwood, San Rafael and Kentfield also responded.
