Pacifica blaze may have been sparked by fireworks

Firefighters put out a brush fire that threatened homes in Pacifica on Sunday afternoon, according to the North County Fire Authority. Fire officials said the blaze was caused by fireworks.

The fire was reported about 3 p.m. in the area of 1111 Terra Nova Blvd., according to fire officials. Crews arriving on the scene called for backup after finding a large area of brush burning and threatening nearby homes.

Fire officials said the flames were difficult to access and almost reached some buildings, but firefighters' aggressive attack contained the fire to about a half-acre.

Crews were able to fully extinguish the fire, including mopping up hot spots, in about two hours.

No homes or property were damaged and no injuries were reported.
