Cal Fire is fighting a grass fire at state Highway 152 and Dinosaur Point Road near Pacheco Pass in rural far southeastern Santa Clara County. As of 5:45 p.m., about 15 acres had burned, said Cal Fire, adding that heat and winds were contributing to a "high rate of spread."
Flames and smoke created quite a scene alongside Highway 24 in Orinda on Monday, across the road from where it started. Fire officials said it wasn't a large fire, but one that serves as a good fire season reminder and wake-up call.
