PACIFICA (KCBS) — Roads have reopened and a Pacifica neighborhood is getting back to normal after a six-alarm vegetation fire forced the evacuation of about 80 homes early Monday morning, fire officials said.

According to authorities, the fire began about 3:35 a.m. in the canyon between Rockaway Beach and Fassler Avenues.

Sixty-four units of the Seacrest Townhomes near the top of Fassler Avenue were being evacuated along with about 30 other homes.

The fire started behind a home on Fassler Avenue and Estella Road and burned straight down the canyon.

Swirling winds are blowing in from the east towards the west which is unusual for this time of year and is driving the grass fire, officials told KCBS.
