Eighty acres of grassland were burned Sunday evening on the 7200 block of Collier Canyon Road north of Livermore. No one was hurt and no structures were damaged.

The fire started around 5 p.m. About 70 firefighters from the San Ramon Valley Protection District, Alameda County Fire Department and Cal Fire — 10 engines, a water tender, a helicopter, one air tanker, two bulldozers and two hand crews — responded. It took crews until 6:15 p.m. to have the blaze under control.

San Ramon Battalion Chief John Viera said an investigation has been completed and the cause of the fire was undetermined."
