Fire extinguished near Webb Ranch

Firefighters from San Mateo County and the Menlo Park Fire Protection District fought and quickly extinguished a grass fire on Friday, Sept. 6, at 2720 Alpine Road, near the Webb Ranch fruit and vegetable stand near Interstate 280.

The fire had been reported at 11:16 a.m. and by 11:42, it had been knocked down and then mopped up, firefighters said. The fire involved between one and two acres of light grass, a "flashy fuel," they said. The fire never threatened any structures, they said.
