Dublin grassfire causes brief evacuation of hundreds

A grassfire surged through hilly terrain Tuesday afternoon in the eastern side of Dublin and threatened homes enough to force the evacuation of several hundred people.
The blaze broke out before 2 p.m., probably in a creek bed near Fallon and Tassajara roads near a newer section of town east of Interstate 580, and quickly burned at least 30 acres, officials reported. As it spread toward a subdivision, firefighters told residents to leave their homes while the attack mounted against the fire.
By 5 p.m. the fire had grown to about 180 acres, but Alameda County Fire Department crews “hit it hard and hit it fast” with the help of a retardant-dropping aircraft, said Sgt.

Residents of the rugged terrain in the Santa Cruz Mountains are well aware of the natural challenges — earthquakes, mud slides, and wildfires — that are part of the trade-off for living among the firs, redwoods and creeks on the tranquil hillside. But for 65-year-old Morgan Hope of Deer Creek Estates, Monday night marked the first time in two decades of living there that danger had come close enough to drive her from her home. “It’s a call you always expect to come, but hope never does,” Morgan said as she sat in the Zayante Fire Department in Felton, which was turned into an evacuation center early Tuesday morning.
