PITTSBURG (KCBS)— A firefighter was injured in a three-alarm brush fire Thursday evening near power lines at the Pittsburg Power Plant, where 10th Street turns into Willow Pass Road.
An official with the the Contra Costa Fire Protection District said crews contained the fire, which burned 35-40 acres, around 7 p.m.
One firefighter suffered smoke inhalation while fighting the blaze and was hospitalized.
The blaze began to putt up thick black smoke around 4 p.m. PG&E crews were also at the scene because of the close proximity to their power plant. No structures were threatened as it is a fairly remote area, and there are no reports of injuries.
