Two Homes Burned In Discovery Bay Fire

DISCOVERY BAY (CBS SF) -- Firefighters contained a two-alarm fire that burned two houses in Discovery Bay Wednesday evening, a fire chief said.

The fire was reported around 6:40 p.m. by an off-duty Contra Costa County battalion chief coming home from work who found a well-involved garage fire at 54 Edgeview Court, East Contra County Fire Protection District Chief Hugh Henderson said.

The battalion chief called a second alarm as the fire was spreading to a neighboring home at 50 Edgeview Court.

The fire destroyed the first house and caused moderate damage to a single-car garage at the second house and smoke damage throughout, Henderson said.

Firefighters also feared that the fire could spread to another adjacent house but managed to put the fire out before that could happen.

The fire was under control about an hour later. The Contra Costa County Fire Protection District provided mutual aid.

No one was injured.
