A couple of fires that broke out Monday afternoon near Lake Nacimiento are now contained.
The fires broke out shortly after 4:00 p.m., in the Oak Shores and Heritage Ranch areas.
CAL FIRE says one of the fires, called the Lynch Fire, burned about nine acres off Interlake Road. The second fire, called the Oak Fire, burned a little less than six acres off Nacimiento Lake Drive. Five homes were briefly threatened by that fire.
Two spot fires, sparked by embers from the other fires, burned approximately 1.4 acres, according to Es Berliner, CAL FIRE spokesperson.
The cause of the fires is under investigation.
