CONTRA COSTA CO. (KCBS) — How dry is it in the Bay Area? A small fire on Kirker Pass Road in Pittsburg on Monday burned three structures and 350 acres. Add the threat of people getting careless with fireworks, which Contra Costa County Fire Captain Andy Bozzo said is already a problem, and there could be a major problem on our hands.
“Fireworks are going off left, right and center and they weren’t the safe and sane fireworks. These were aerial projectiles with a lot of heat and a few fires started, so we’re bracing for the worst,” he said.
