SUNOL, Calif. (KRON) – Firefighters continue to battle the Marsh Fire near Sunol Tuesday.
The fire, which consists of three grass fires, broke out Sunday in the area of Calaveras Road and Welch Creek Road.
The fire has burned more than 1,775 acres so far and is 0% contained.
Mandatory evacuations remain in place for those who live on Welch Creek Road.
Residents living in a remote area along Kilkare Road were told to evacuate Monday as the fire threatened their homes. Those residents have been able to safely return but the fire rages on in the area.
