Firefighters were able to stop forward progress of a vegetation fire that broke out Friday afternoon in Templeton.
CAL FIRE says it broke out on Spring Creek Way across from Almond Drive.
One home was threatened but was saved by retardant drops made in the area, officials said. Crews then came in and used hoses to put the rest of the fire out.
Approximately two acres burned.
Crews expect to remain on scene until around 4:30 p.m. to mop up. Templeton City Fire also responded.
