A fire that allegedly started in a tree in Herald burned through more than 10 acres of foliage Friday.
At approximately 3:47 p.m., Herald Fire Protection crews were called out to the area of Bennett and Clay Station Roads in Herald where a fire had spread after a tree initially caught fire.
The fire, according to media reports, spread out to vegetation near the tree, igniting 10 to 15 acres.
Though several homes were threatened, no one was hurt and no homes were burned.
Fire crews from Herald, California Fire, Wilton and Galt helped in keeping the fire from spreading to a nearby eucalyptus grove.
Aerial water drops were also used to help stop the fire from spreading.
It took roughly five-and-a-half hours to put out and clean up the site.
It was not immediately clear what may have initially caused the tree to catch fire.
