A smoky and apparently fast-moving grass fire was spotted burning behind 15 La Salle Drive in Moraga this morning and appears to have crested the intervening hill on its way toward Campolindo High School.
Moraga-Orinda Fire District personnel and apparatus scrambled to assess the scope of the blaze, maneuvering to get ahead of its front as it moved and appeared to have confined the blaze as it crested the hill.
There are no reports of any injuries or structures threatened at this time. We’re updating, as usual during breaking news scenarios, via Flash and here, as we get additional details.
UPDATE: This blaze declared contained at 11:58 p.m. Mop-up operations underway. Cause of this fire is being investigated and reports that “kids” had been spotted “playing with fire” in the area could not be immediately confirmed.
