Two grass fires break out near Northgate and Del Paso Blvd

Areas flamed up until the firecrews arrived.

Two grass fires broke out near Northgate and Del Paso Blvd this afternoon. The firecrews had gained control of the fire near the railroad tracks when another fire ignited about two blocks away. It was quickly extinguished.

The smoke from the first fire could be seen driving on Capital City Freeway 160 around 4pm.

Here are some scenes:
