OAKLAND — Firefighters in Oakland were at the scene of a structure and grass fire in the Eastmont Hills neighborhood Monday afternoon.

The fire department said crews were sent to the 7800 block of Outlook Avenue around 4 p.m. for a 1-acre grass fire.

It was upgraded to a 2nd alarm fire shortly after, as the fire had a moderate rate of spread and was threatening homes. One home had its attic catch fire, the department said. 

While crews worked to extinguish the home fire, other firefighters were containing the grass fire off Parker Avenue. The fire was contained around 5:20 p.m., with over 50 firefighters having responded to the scene.
