A downed power line in San Ramon on Tuesday evening sparked a fire near homes that damaged fences and a shed, according to the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District.
Fire district officials said crews were dispatched at 6:21 p.m. Tuesday to the intersection of Broadmoor Drive and Bernard Avenue, where there was an electrical issue that caused a structure fire.
The fire, which was fully under control within around 30 minutes, damaged 20 feet of fencing in the backyards of homes and burned a shed, fire district officials said.
PG&E confirmed that it was a downed power line that caused the fire. There were no outages associated with the incident.
PG&E crews completed temporary repairs Tuesday night and work on a new power pole was expected to be completed on Wednesday, according to the utility.
There were no injuries associated with the fire.
PG&E advises residents to keep themselves and others away whenever there is a downed electricity wire, and immediately call 9-1-1.
