Almost eleven hours after a raging fire started on Stanwell Dr. in Concord, the blaze has been extinguished and the Contra Costa County Health Department has lifted a health advisory they issued earlier today.
The following information is from the Contra Costa Health Department:
The health advisory has been lifted. The fire is out and smoke is dissipating. Because of smoke from a fire at 2371 Stanwell in Concord, a health advisory was issued this morning as a precaution for a half mile radius around the fire.
The areas south of Olivera Road and Highway 4, east of 680, north of Willow Pass Road and West of 242.
People with pre-existing respiratory health conditions were advised to avoid the area or keep their windows and doors closed.
As a precautionary measure, our WIC office in Concord is closed for the day because of the nearby fire. People who had WIC appointments today are being contacted by staff to reschedule.
