(UPDATE: September 25, 2018 5:02 p.m.) According to KCFD, the fire is up to 4 acres. Crews are having trouble getting to the fire as there is water in the area. 

No structures are threatened, but PG&E is on scene because of a power pole nearby.

KCFD said that crews will be at the scene over night to mop-up and watch for hot-spots.
