A vehicle caught on fire around 2:00 a.m. Friday morning on Sandringham Drive South in Moraga.

A male resident of a nearby home saw the flames and immediately evacuated his family from their home and called the fire department and police.

The vehicle’s gas tank was leaking, allowing the fire to spread to a nearby yard and home.

Moraga-Orinda firefighters responded to the fire, along with crews from Contra Costa County Fire. They were able to contain all portions of the fire shortly after 2:30 a.m.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire, but there was damage to the nearby yard and home.
