At 5:10 a.m., firefighters with the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District responded to a report of a structure fire in the 2100 block of Raindrop Circle, according to fire marshal Robert Marshall.

Upon arrival, firefighters discovered two neighboring homes were on fire. Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control within about 30 minutes, Marshall said.

All seven occupants inside the homes were able to safely evacuate and no injuries were reported, according to Marshall.
