Fire at Concord residence sends black smoke high above I-680

Fire crews raced to a residence in Concord near Interstate 680 on Tuesday after a blaze broke out in the backyard, a fire official said.

Firefighters received the call about the fire on Heather Court at 1:21 p.m., Contra Costa Fire Protection District spokesman Steve Hill said. The blaze sent a large plume of black smoke above I-680 and the neighborhood near Cambridge Park.

According to Hill, all of the residents in the home were outside when fire crews arrived, and at least one tree  in the backyard was on fire. It did not appear the fire reached the home, Hill said.

No other information was available immediately.
