FAIRFIELD — Firefighters from the Napa County Fire Department Gordon Valley station got a “lucky save” Friday afternoon as a blaze threatened three homes in eastern Napa County, near the Solano County border.

The fire was near Oak Springs Drive and Gordon Valley and Grandview roads.

The call came in about 2:15 p.m. The fire was under control about 4 p.m. Nine acres burned.

“No one was evacuated,” said James George, assistant chief of the Napa County Fire Department Gordon Valley station. “We were able to catch it quick enough.”

About 60 firefighters from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the Napa and Suisun City departments responded.

A  storage tank and some power poles were damaged, George said.
