A brush fire flared up Sunday afternoon along the southwest side of Highway 99 near Armstrong Road.
Firefighters at the scene said it was a smoky blaze that only affected about 1.5 acres.
Officials do not know the cause of the fire that set dry grass, weeds, brush and tree stumps ablaze.
Two engines responded, one from Morada Fire and one from Woodbridge Fire. The fire was contained in about 20 minutes and completely extinguished in an hour and a half. There were no injuries or loss of property caused by the fire.
Woodbridge firefighter Mike Jennings said brush fires are common in the heat of summer.
“It’s a common time and in a common area, especially with the high heat and low humidity,” said Jennings.
