BRISBANE (CBS SF) – Firefighters appeared to gain the upper hand on a vegetation fire burning in Brisbane Monday afternoon.

No homes were threatened by the blaze, which was reported at 11:09 a.m. near South Hill Drive, fire spokesman Matt Lucett said.

The fire worked its way up a hillside, prompting a two-alarm response that has included a helicopter and two Cal Fire hand crews—one of which was nearby when the fire started, he said.

“We were fortunate to have a Cal Fire hand crew in the city of Brisbane at the time working on some vegetation management,” Lucett said.

No injuries have been reported and no structures damaged.
