SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/KCBS) — A four-alarm grass fire in South San Francisco was fully contained at 41 acres, Cal Fire officials reported Saturday evening.

The fire on the south side of San Bruno Mountain was reported around 1:55 p.m. near the intersection of Hillside Boulevard and Chestnut Avenue, according to a San Mateo County Fire Dispatcher.

Some homes in the area were evacuated, the dispatcher reported.

Firefighters responded with two Cal Fire aircraft and one helicopter and helitack handcrew, according to Brian Molver, district coordinator for the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services.

No injuries were reported, but some roads were closed including Hillside at Airport Boulevard and Chestnut, Molver said.

The fire did not spread to Brisbane, according to Randy Breault, the director of public works for that city.

The American Red Cross reported assisting more than 100 firefighters on the scene.
