The Pittsburg brush fire that broke out Thursday afternoon off Willow Pass Road has been upgraded to a three-alarm fire, according to Contra Costa County Fire Department Twitter feed from the scene. 


Thursday, March 20 4:23 p.m.

Fire crews are fighting a one-alarm vegetation fire in Pittsburg this afternoon, a Contra Costa County Fire Protection District dispatcher said.

The blaze was reported around 3:15 p.m. near the intersection of Willow Pass Road and West 10th Street, according to the dispatcher.

The fire appears to be burning about 1 to 2 acres of grass, brush and trees and no structures are threatened, according to a message on the fire district's public information Twitter account.

This grass fire comes on the heels of a Pleasant Hill house blaze today, and two residential fires in Pittsburg Tuesday.
