Thanks to KRON4 for letting us know that the San Francisco Fire Department was very busy over the holiday weekend, responding to 110 fires across the city during a 12-hour period from 3pm on July 4th until 3am on Sunday morning July 5th.

The fire department had five roving patrols EMS units which helped them respond quickly.

The SFFD reports that most of the fires were on the southside of San Francisco. Two of the fires were from burnt food, the rest were caused by fireworks.

The Chronicle reports that grass fires, many linked to illegal fireworks flared on Saturday night including a 4-acre grass fire at McLaren Park (Gleneages Golf Course) and a 5-acre fire in the Bayview that threatened motor homes.

KRON4 reports that Contra Costa County fought 50 fires in just one hour (9-10pm on Saturday) caused by illegal fireworks
