Contra Costa Crews Extinguish Brush Fire On Rodeo Refinery Property

CONTRA COSTA COUNTY (BCN/CBS SF) -- A vegetation fire was contained Wednesday evening on the Phillips 66 refinery in the unincorporated town of Rodeo.

Crews from the Rodeo-Hercules Fire District and Crockett Carquinez Fire Department responded to the fire along eastbound Interstate Highway 80 after 5 p.m. and had to gain access to the fenced off area through the refinery gates, officials said.

The fire had burned about a quarter of an acre before it was extinguished.

The fire district said the cause of the fire appeared to be overhead power lines at a time when the region is under a wind advisory.
