    The hot weather means fire danger across the Bay Area is at a high.

    In Contra Costa County, firefighters on Wednesday were building a line of defense in the event of a big fire.

    Firefighters hope the North Orinda shaded fuel break, which stretches from Tilden Park in Berkeley all the way to Lafayette, will create a line of defense and give them a fighting chance to save homes if a wind-fueled breaks out.

    NBC Bay Area's Jodi Hernandez has more in the video report above.
