LAKEPORT – Firefighters were able to quickly contain a small grass fire that broke out Saturday evening along Lakeshore Boulevard.


The fire was reported shortly before 6 p.m. near trees and power lines in the vicinity of Hill Road.


Lakeport Fire Protection District responded and was able to contain the fire to only a very few acres, with a helicopter summoned to the scene canceled.


Two Lake County Sheriff's deputies questioned a subject at the scene about the fire but no one was detained.


Although the fire was under power lines none of the lines appeared to have been damaged and none were down.


Firefighters said they were not sure of what caused the fire.
