Contra Costa County Fire District crews answered a one-alarm call in the 3900 block of Quail Ridge Road in Lafayette Tuesday after neighbors reported a shed on fire there.
The blaze was reported at around 4:30 p.m. and caused a few anxious moments for neighbors, one of whom told Patch the fire had engulfed a home in the area of 3966 Quail Ridge Road.
County fire crews on the scene discovered that the "house" was a shed, and mobilized to put down the 1/2-acre blaze, pushed by moderate vegetation and moderate winds.
Several units are on the scene. We'll have more if the situation changes.
