A fire, which is currently about 60 acres in size, is burining on the lower portion of Mt. Diablo, off Northgate Road.
The blaze is currently two-alarms, and crews from both CalFIRE & ConFIRE are on scene.
If you want to go look at the fire, please don’t. Several more fire crews are headed to the scene, and they need all the space on the road, so please stay back.
We will keep you updated, so stay tuned to Claycord.com.
