A fire in the Benicia Industrial Park burned an area of grass and brush between East Second Street and Stone Road Saturday morning. The fire was reported as a possible structure fire at 6:25 a.m.
Firefighters responding to the call from Benicia Fire Station 11 reported being able to see the flames from a mile away and called a second alarm believing the flames were coming from a building.
When firefighters arrived at the scene of the fire they found that a hillside above the 500 block of Stone road was on fire and no buildings were involved. Firefighters fought the fire from Stone Road and East Second Street.
Firefighters were able to contain the fire by 7 a.m.
Mutual aid was provided by units from Fairfield, Vallejo and Contra Costa County.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
