The cause of the fire, which singed a quarter of an acre, is under investigation.

San Rafael authorities extinguished a fire in the hills south of the Marin Civic Center Sunday afternoon, according to Battalion Chief Jim Lydon.

Firefighters received reports of flames on Scettrini Fire Road around 3:55 p.m., but was contained within the hour, Lydon said. The fire singed a quarter of an acre, and the cause is under investigation.

Several drivers saw the smoke from Highway 101. Edie Tanem Morales commented the San Rafael Patch Facebook fan page that “a bad plastic smell” lingered after the balze was doused.
