Update: 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 4: A wildland fire that's consumed between six and eight acres of grass on Deer Creek Road, just west of town, is 100 percent contained.
That means Cal Fire officials have a controlled line all the way around the blaze's perimeter, with either a wet line or some other method.
"It's fully contained," said retired Los Gatos firefighter Brian Floyd, who was keeping an ear on his scanner all day trying to keep tabs on the blaze that began shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday morning.
About 200 firefighters were on the scene and four air tankers and two helicopters were assigned to fight the fire and probably around 20 fire engines on the scene, Floyd added.
"Cal Fire is handling the whole thing ... they'll be there all day," Floyd said.
The Cal Fire Felton Emergency Command Center is handling the fire's updates to emergency personnel on scene to handle the incident, Floyd added.
No injuries to firefighters have been reported, no structures have been compromised and no evacuations have been made as a result of the fire, according to the Cal Fire incident page.
Cal Fire is working on putting out a multi-acre fire in unincorporated Santa Cruz County this afternoon, a fire spokesman said.
Fire crews reported to the fire on Deer Creek Road in Las Cumbres, just west of Los Gatos, at 7:30 a.m., Cal Fire spokesman Daniel Berlant said.
The fire engulfed six acres of land, requiring about 200 personnel on the scene, including helicopters and air tankers, Berlant said.
The fire is burning heavy timber, posing a challenge for crews, Berlant said.
As of 1:15 p.m., the fire is 50 percent contained, and the air tankers have been removed from the site, Berlant said.
The fire is not threatening any structures, Berlant said. No injuries are reported, he said.
