FAIRFIELD  (AP) — Authorities say a wind-driven grass fire has burned two homes and prompted authorities to evacuate the residents of another 10 homes in a north Fairfield neighborhood.
Fairfield police Sgt. Matt Bloesch says the fire may have started Friday afternoon at a homeless encampment along a trail behind the homes.
He said the blaze quickly spread to a shed, then two homes and a detached garage. Patrol officers evacuated 10 more homes on Santa Barbara Way as a precaution.
No injury was reported and the fire was contained by sunset.
Bloesch said police and fire investigators are looking into the cause of the blaze.
