Tracy, CA, USA — The largest grass fire of the year broke out in Corral Hollow Canyon north of Interstate 580 on Sunday afternoon, scorching 469acres.
Fire crews convened to battle the largest grass fire of the year that broke out in Corral Hollow Canyon and scorched 469 acres Sunday. Above, a California Department of Forestry tanker suppresses the blaze with flame-retardant spray.
A battalion of fire engines, water tankers, helicopters, bulldozers and firefighters brought the blaze under control just two hours after it was reported.
There were no injuries, and it burned nothing but grass, Tracy Fire Department Chief Andrew Kellogg said.
The fire was called in at about 4 p.m. Sunday and, by then, had already burned 60 acres of grass about 1½ miles into the canyon along Corral Hollow Road. By 5:30 p.m., the fire was under control.
