The actual size of the small fires was not immediately known. It does not appear that any structures were threatened and no injuries were reported. 

Cal Fire's ground resources and Hollister air craft quickly reacted to this incident. The air craft has since been released, but ground resources will remain at the scene for mop up. 

All east and westbound lanes of Highway 152 were affected by the fire and have been closed at Ferguson Road in Gilroy.
