CONCORD, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California fire department ordered residents to immediately evacuate two neighborhoods in the city of Concord, in Northern California, after a brush fire spread close to homes.

The fire broke out Friday afternoon in the city of Concord headed toward Walnut Creek, northeast of San Francisco. It was unclear how many homes or people were affected.

Contra Costa County Fire spokesman Ryan Bain told KGO-TV in San Francisco that the dry conditions seemed more like August than June. Bain said hot temperatures, wind and dry grass were contributing to “dangerous conditions.”

The fire was less than a square mile.
