Firefighters from Station 22 (St. Johns) and Station 16 (Sylvan) responded in brush units which often allow for easier access to brush fires and quick deployment of wildland fire hose. In addition to their normal firefighting duties, select firefighters staff brush units for these types of incidents. Station 10 (Burlingame) is home to Water Tender 10 which is also used in wildland fires and contains more water than a normal fire engine.
The fire was brought under control at 12:11am and fire crews remained on scene to extinguish hot spots. There were no injuries reported at this fire and the cause is unknown at this time. More information will be given as it becomes available.
