Cal Fire fights grass fire burning in Alameda County

Patterson Fire: Cal Fire battles grass fires near power plant in Alameda County

YEAH. THANK YOU. AND ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THEIR GOOD WORK TONIGHT. WE NOW GO TO LEE ANNE DENYER. She lives in Patterson Fire in Alameda County. We saw this from the Air Leanne. WHAT DO YOU SEE FROM THE GROUND? WE CAN SEE THE WIND IS BLOWING ALL AROUND RIGHT NOW. OH YEAH. THIS WAS THE FIRST THING WE NOTICED. AS SOON AS WE GET OUT OF THE CAR. How strong the wind was. Hmm, that was definitely undeniable. But I want to show you what we see here on the ground. As firefighters work to get out and contain this one completely. YOU CAN SEE JUST STRAIGHT AHEAD. There are some flames burning up to the road here. AND SOME CAL FIRE CREWS WORKING. I think it’s quite, uh, surprising how much you can already see how much you can already see this whole section of the field that was here is just black at this point, like this gray smoke is. Um, is I-8 flying into the air. I want to mention that we were, uh, going down five. We were near LATHROP, I think, when we saw the smoke, before we got here. So that just gives you an idea of ​​how far away people see the smoke from these fires. Um, in our area. SO I WANT IT. WE’RE GOING TO KEEP AN EYE ON THINGS HERE AND, UH, CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS SITUATION BECAUSE THIS LOOKS LIKE A VERY BUSY WEEK, UH, FOR OUR FIRE CREWS IN THE AREA. WE WILL SEND IT TO YOU. Very good, Léanne. THANK YOU. WE NOW KNOW FROM CAL FIRE, 99.5 ACRES, BURNING AT 50% CONTAINMENT RIGHT NOW. We saw about four planes in the sky and two helicopters putting out these flames earlier. So they did good WO

Patterson Fire: Cal Fire battles grass fires near power plant in Alameda County

Cal Fire is cleaning up after a grass fire burned nearly 100 acres west of the Tracy area Monday. The Patterson Fire first broke out near Patterson Pass Road and North Midway Road in the Altamont area of ​​Alameda County. Patterson Pass Road was closed for a time, but has since reopened. It had burned 95.5 acres and was 75% contained as of 9 p.m., Cal Fire said. Containment, which is not necessarily a measure of the extent to which the fire has been extinguished, is measured in percentages to describe a break or line where combustible materials around the fire have been reached, thereby helping to prevent the fire to spread further. KTVU’s chopper footage showed the fire burning a path near the substation at Pacific Gas and Electric Co’s Altamont Pass wind farm. KTVU’s helicopter also saw a second grass fire burning on the road in Livermore. Cal Fire said it burned one acre and the rate of spread was moderate. The fires are near where the Corral Fire burned in San Joaquin County. This story is developing. Stay with KCRA 3 for updates.
