All evacuation orders have now been lifted and all public roads are open, but firefighters continue to battle the blaze in steep, rugged terrain with difficult access.
Two firefighters were taken to a hospital with heat injuries Monday in a 125-acre vegetation fire southeast of San Jose that stood at about 50 percent contained by late afternoon, a fire official said.
Firefighters were battling a one-alarm vegetation fire next to the Los Lagos Golf Course in South San Jose Monday afternoon, a dispatcher said.
Crews put out a fire that burned an outbuilding and some vegetation in Orinda on Monday and threatened to spread to a nearby home, Moraga-Orinda fire district officials said Tuesday.
Cows that used to graze along the top of a Walnut Creek subdivision ridge have been herded elsewhere, and that has some residents expressing concern about the corresponding increased fire danger.
Several residents in the area were advised to evacuate as a precaution but no mandatory evacuations were issued.
