Firefighters Battling 2-Alarm Fire on Walter Way in Antioch

At 4:48 am Thursday, Contra Costa County firefighters were dispatched to a report of a commercial structure fire in the area of 101 Walter Way in the City of Antioch.

Engine 81 arrived on scene reporting an exterior fire, however, upon further investigation, the fire extended to the building and roof. A short time later, the fire extended to a nearby home.

By 5:10 am, the fire was upgraded to a 2-alarm response with flames coming through a roof.

By 5:23 am, firefighters went “defensive fire attack” due to structure instability.

As of 6:16 am, fire crews are still on scene with active fire.

As of 7:20 am, CONFIRE reported the fire with multiple tenants, is under control. Crews extinguishing hot spots. No injuries. Fire under investigation.

Crews mop up after 3-alarm fire burns 40 acres in Pittsburg

PITTSBURG, Calif. (KGO) -- The brush fire is under control, but a crew stayed on scene well into the night, just to make sure it stays down.

As the sun went down on Pittsburg, firefighters gained control of what they called an unusual fire.

"It's burning on top of the water. Fire on water," said George Laing from the Contra Costa Fire Protection District.

Flaming tule reeds, eight to 10 feet high, burned over a boggy marsh filled with three to four feet of water. Firefighters relied on catwalks to get to the flames, but when the catwalks caught fire they had to slog through the marsh.

The Pittsburg power plant is currently non-operational. So there was no threat of a major power outage. The real threat came from transmission lines above.

"The PG&E transmission lines contain high voltage and in some cases smoke and particulate matter burning from fires can cause arcing between the lines and down to the ground, and that was a concern," said Laing.

Willow Pass Road was closed for about two hours preventing people from getting to work and home.

"Last summer we had the other side of the road catch on fire and we had pretty much the same situation and we were stuck out here. It was around the Fourth of July," said Steve Sebastian, a truck driver.

But that was July when vegetation is expected to be dry.

"We're all surprised at aggressive fire behavior that causes a three-alarm fire in the tules in March. We're concerned about the kind of fire behavior we're going to get this summer," said Laing.

This fire consumed a lot of fresh green grass and by July it'll all be dead, so another fire like this could spread a lot faster and jump the roads. Investigators are still trying to figure out the cause of this fire.

Capt. Robert Marshall said the blaze threatened a few power lines connected to the nearby NRG Energy, Inc. natural gas power plant but was not a threat to any structures at the plant, including large tanks previously used for fuel storage.

No injuries were reported.

A brush fire on Bradford Island in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta near Bethel Island burned 212 acres and two structures Monday, fire officials said.

Crews responded to the blaze on the 2,100-acre island around 1:30 a.m., and the fire did not cause any injuries, according to a statement from Gil Guerrero, a battalion chief for the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District.

The area does not receive fire protection from any agency. The island is about 8 miles north of Antioch and an estimated 25-35 people live there.

Two people were evacuated from the island, Guerrero said. A ferry took one engine to the island, and it drove around looking for those who wanted to leave, he said. The California Highway Patrol and U.S. Coast Guard traveled around the outside of the island to see if anyone needed assistance leaving.

The remaining residents decided to stay behind and fight the fire themselves, Guerrero said.

Fire personnel are choosing to let the fire burn, because it’s surrounded by water on all sides. They will respond to life-threatening cases, according to Guerrero.

The last big fire on the island happened in July 2010, when a fire burned or smoldered there for nearly a week.
