3:00 PM:    There is a smoke inhilation hazard in Knightsen due to a grass fire.  

The Contra Costa County sheriff has issued a Shelter in Place order for people within a mile radius of Knightsen Avenue and Delta Road are advised to take shelter in the nearest place of safety. Go inside, and close all windows and doors. Stay off the phone unless you need to report a life-threatening emergency at your location. Stay indoors for the next three hours (starting at 3pm) unless you receive further official instructions.

Knightsen Elementary School students were evacuated to Oakley’s Delta Vista Middle School, where parents were picking them up at around 3:30 p.m., according to a Delta Vista staff member.

5:08 PM:   The “All Clear” has been given and Shelter-in-place has been lifted.  All is well.
