    The Contra Costa Fire Department battled a vegetation fire in Pittsburg that prompted a shelter in place due to hazardous materials in the area Saturday afternoon.

    Fire crews received reports of a dry grass area on fire around 4:30 p.m. on East 3rd and Harbor Streets, an area previously known as a hazmat site.

    CCFD prompted a shelter in place for Commercial sites Dow Chemicals Co. and USS-POSCO Industries, which are near the site, fire officials said.

    No structures were threatened and crews were able to contain the flames around 6 p.m. and the shelter in place was lifted.
