Grass fire put out on Rockledge Lane

(Saturday, June 19) By 10 a.m. Saturday, fire crews had put out a 30 foot-by-30 foot grass fire at Entry 8 on Rockledge Lane . No residences were threatened.

ConFire sent eight engines to the scene, and Walnut Creek Police and Securitas temporarily shut down Rockledge Lane and asked everyone to avoid the area so emergency personnel could work to put out the fire.

Shortly after 9 a.m. ConFire said they had the fire surrounded and canceled additional resources. Crews remained on the scene at 10 a.m. for clean up efforts.

Power also was lost to the surrounding area because of the fire. If power remains off as heat rises during the day, residents can find cooling spots in the clubhouses. Gateway, including the Redwood Room, is open from 6 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. The Event Center and Dollar Clubhouse are each open from 7 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
