Firefighters quickly extinguished this vegetation fire that occurred on the 2100 block of Shore Line Drive on Saturday evening, Alameda Fire Capt. Jim Colburn said this weekend. The Alameda Fire Department sent an engine and a truck to put out the fire, which was burning next to a bench adjacent to the beach. As of Sunday afternoon, the cause of the fire was undetermined. James Astwood took these photos of the fire, which he said spread quickly because of the wind, and submitted them to The Alamedan.
