Updated: Another Summit fire

The Santa Cruz Sentinel is reporting that the fire department successfully contained the two wildfires on Summit Road in Corralitos. They were first reported at 12:48PM, a little over a mile from Windy Oaks, to the east of the area that was devastated by last year's Summit Fire.

Summit Road was closed for a while to traffic from its southern end, at the junction with Mount Madonna Road. One of the fires was contained at two acres, the other at five. No information on the cause, but the area has been experiencing record high temperatures this weekend (it was 99F in Santa Clara today).
