A 5.6-acre grass fire is burning near the Point Reyes Lighthouse, according to the National Park Service.
Crews from Marin County Fire, and an air tanker, are working to extinguish the Point Reyes grass fire, said Christine Beekman, a National Park Service spokesperson.
While the fire was along the lighthouse's access road, the good news is "it is burning toward the ocean," Beekman said, away from the lighthouse itself. The fire grew from two-acres to nearly six acres since the morning but was 75% contained by the late afternoon.
"It was foremost on everyone's mind, 'how close was this to the lighthouse?'" Beekman said. But there are "no worries" that the structure is threatened because it is largely protected from the fire by steep and rugged terrain nearby.
