Discovery Bay fire

A fire damaged a two-story house in Discovery Bay Monday evening.

It was reported at about 5 p.m. on the 4300 block of Monterey Court and consumed the first and second story of the home, with heavy damage to the structure's backside deck area, according to the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District.

“Upon arriving on the scene, we had heavy flames and (fire) activity,” said Steve Aubert, fire marshal of the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District… "With the amount of (fire activity) going on, we went defensive right away by protecting the structures around the house that was on fire.”
