Fire crews late Friday were working to put out a fire that was burning near a Concord apartment complex -- one of three blazes that occurred around the county Friday.
Earlier, crews also successfully doused residential blazes in Pleasant Hill and Antioch.
The fire in Concord, which began around 10:30 p.m. in the 2700 block of Argyll ¿Avenue, was burning garage units that appeared to be detached from the apartment building, a Contra Costa Fire District dispatcher said. Initial radio reports indicated that the occupants of the buildings were evacuated. It was not immediately clear if anybody was injured.
About an hour before that fire broke out, crews extinguished a fire at Longview and Clayburn roads in Antioch that involved power lines and bushes but did not burn any structures, according to a dispatcher.
Around 5:40 p.m., another fire damaged a living room of a townhouse in the 600 block of Little Lane in Pleasant Hill. Details of that blaze were not available, but a Contra Costa Fire District official said via Twitter that it appeared no occupants were in the residence.
Additional details were expected to be made available Saturday morning.
