Firefighters knock down Joaquin Miller Park blaze

Firefighters successfully battled a two-alarm fire that raged in Joaquin Miller Park Saturday morning, a battalion chief said.

Firefighters from Oakland and East Bay Regional Parks responded to a report of smoke around 7:20 a.m. Saturday, according to Battalion Chief Demond Simmons.

It took about an hour to find the fire, which turned out to be in Joaquin Miller Park in mixed vegetation, Simmons said.

The fire raged across heavy vegetation. The battalion chief estimated that it spread across an area about 100 feet by 100 feet before it was under control shortly after 11 a.m.

There were no reported injuries and there was no threat to any homes, according to Simmons.

The cause is under investigation.
