A brush fire in Pittsburg early Friday morning prompted evacuations, but fire crews were able to keep it from spreading to nearby homes, according to the Contra Costa County Fire District.

The fire was first reported just before 2 a.m. and 100% contained by 7:30 a.m., fire officials said.

After quickly spreading to 120 acres, firefighters contained the flames and lifted evacuations in the area of Jacqueline Drive, Daffodil Drive and Serrano Way, fire officials said.

Con Fire initially reported the size of the blaze at 200 acres but updated that estimate later Friday morning.

Forward progress was stopped at about 5 a.m., but fire crews continued working to contain the flames and protect homes, Con Fire said. Damage was limited to a couple of fence lines, and no injures were reported, Con Fire said.
