    Firefighters late Tuesday were working to fully contain a two-alarm brush fire that prompted shelter-in-place and evacuation orders in Dublin.

    The fire erupted earlier in the afternoon in the area of Tassajara and Fallon roads. Heavy smoke from the blaze, which officials said charred at least 118 acres, triggered a shelter-in-place order for the Dublin Ranch (east side of Fallon) and Positano communities.

    Evacuation orders were also issued, but later lifted for nearby neighborhoods.

    The fire late Tuesday was 75 percent contained, officials said.

    No other information was immediately available.
