Fire crews jumped into action after two fires started in El Dorado Hills Friday afternoon.

The first fire began around 2 p.m. on the south side of Green Valley Road, west of Mormon Island Drive, according to El Dorado County Fire Acting Battalion Chief Russ Hasemeier. It was contained to 5.4 acres of wildland. That fire spawned a smaller blaze between Mormon Island Drive and Browns Ravine. The second fire burned 2.1 acres. The fires were both contained by about 2:45 p.m.

Firefighters from El Dorado Hills, Folsom and Cal Fire responded to the fires. Cal Fire dropped retardant from the air as crews doused the flames on the ground. No structures were damaged and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the initial fire is still under investigation.
