At approximately 3:32 p.m., a 911 caller reported a fire burning near Belmont Trail and Bend Road. As of Friday morning, the fire had burned 263 acres and was 80 percent contained.

Firefighters battled the blaze from both the air and ground. Cal Fire stated in a tweet Thursday evening that firefighters had stopped the forward progress of the blaze.
