ORINDA (KRON) — Firefighters were battling a two-alarm fire along Highway 24 in Orinda Monday afternoon, according to Contra Costa firefighters.
The fire was reported at 12:57 p.m. on the right-hand shoulder of westbound Highway 24 near the Gateway Boulevard on-ramp, CHP officials said.
Three lanes were closed in the westbound direction, but all lanes were open in the eastbound direction.
Since 6:13 p.m., however, all lanes have reopened.
The 25-acre fire was sparked by a car on the side of Hwy 24.
The car fire involved a sedan with engine problems on the right-hand shoulder of westbound Highway 24 near the Wilder Road on-ramp. The flames then spread to the nearby grass and hillside, CHP Officer Brandon Correia said.
Cal Fire officials said on Twitter shortly after 3 p.m. that the blaze’s “forward progress has been stopped” by fire crews.
No injuries have been reported in connection with the fire, Correia said
