Firefighters contain grass fire in Tustin
No one was hurt in the fire, which was reported about 3:15 p.m. and burned grassland in the area of Tustin Ranch and Portola Parkway, said Capt. Marc Stone, a spokesman for the Orange County Fire Authority.
Evacuations ordered earlier for 11 homes near Collar and Riehl avenues have been lifted. Some 75 firefighters took less than three hours to extinguish the blaze, Stone said.
There is no immediate word on what caused the fire; however, arson investigators are interviewing people seen near the fire and have ruled out that it was caused accidentally, Stone said.
Anyone with information about the fire's cause is asked to call (855) TIP-OCCS (847-6227).
