A two-alarm grass fire at Laguna Star and Fieldale drives near Elk Grove’s Laguna Creek area has been contained after burning between 3 and 4 acres.

Multiple people reported a fire shortly after 2 p.m. and crews arriving at the scene determined two fires were burning in the area. Chief Tracey Hansen said the second alarm was issued because there were two fires and the area was difficult to reach.

She said no homes were threatened.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Fire officials said neighbors reported hearing fireworks in the area before the fire.
