    Fire crews on Tuesday were battling a four-alarm brush fire that spread to homes and prompted evacuations in Vallejo, according to fire officials.

    The blaze ignited near Hanns Park at about 5:55 p.m. and was burning near Creekview Drive, Vallejo Fire Department officials said. Twenty homes on Creekview were evacuated, and 10 homes were damaged.

    "I just went over and cut the brush back 20 feet," resident John Lee said. "My house is going to be the first one to burn, and thank God I did because my house would have burned."

    The fire had scorched about 10 acres as of Tuesday evening, fire officials said.

    Cal Fire was providing aerial support, and the Napa County Fire Department also responded to the scene.

    No further details were immediately available.
