    The fire was reported at 6:34 p.m. in the 2400 block of Franklin Canyon Road.

    The blaze started in a storage yard full of RVs and boats and surrounded by vegetation, grass, some vineyards and large structures on both sides, according to Contra Costa Fire Battalion Chief Steve Hill.

    The fire was contained within an hour, thanks to a massive mutual aid response, he said.

    There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
