Crews have full containment on a vegetation fire in the unincorporated area of San Martin in Santa Clara County, Cal Fire said Wednesday morning.

In a statement on social media around 7:25 a.m., Cal Fire said firefighters have 100% containment on the blaze in the area of Rucker and Guibal avenues. The Rucker Fire reportedly burned 1.74 acres.

Cal Fire officials earlier said a firefighter suffered a minor injury in the fire and was sent to a hospital, but has been released.
