Pleasanton brush fire near I-680 homes quickly doused

Firefighters stop half-acre blaze in 45 minutes

Crews from the Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department quickly extinguished a grass fire near I-680 and Sunol Boulevard Sunday afternoon before it had the chance to spread to nearby homes.

Photographer Mike Sedlak said the blaze started around 4:30 p.m. and was contained within 45 minutes. The fire consumed about a one-half acre of dry grassland on a slope northwest of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks and a nearby residential area.

Fire captain Aaron Lacey said firefighters had yet to determine how the fire started.
