Moraga-Orinda firefighters fought back a grass fire that erupted about 3:15 p.m. today between Moraga Valley Lane and Fieldbrook Place, north of Moraga Way, officials said.

Firefighters found the fire climbing toward a fence behind 14 Fieldbrook Place.
They contained the fire by 3:44 p.m. and called off firefighters en route from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection.

The fire consumed grass near Moraga Valley Presbyterian Church, at 10 Moraga Valley Lane, which is southwest of Fieldbrook Place. The church office was closed at the time.
