Firefighters in Contra Costa County were battling two vegetation fires Wednesday that broke out dangerously close to densely populated subdivisions, in Antioch and in Bay Point. And a third fire also broke out today in Livermore.

This fire season is already shaping up to be a doozy, after another drier-than-average winter and with early warning signs via small fires getting whipped up across the East and North Bay barely a week into June.

On Wednesday, two brush fires broke out in Contra Costa County. As NBC Bay Area reports, a two-alarm blaze broke out around 2 p.m. and was threatening homes along Palomar Court and near San Elijo Court in Antioch — though firefighters appeared to have it under control within about 20 minutes.

"Conditions very dangerous, report all fires immediately to 911," tweeted Con Fire after that blaze was contained.

A second fire broke out in Bay Point near Mallard Slough Road, and that was first reported at 2:30 p.m. The status of that fire is not known, but no evacuation orders had been made as of 3:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, around 1:30 p.m., a 2- to 3-acre vegetation fire was reported near Greenville Road in Livermore, and visible from the I-580 freeway.

CalFire SCU was on the scene and tweeted "use caution if you are traveling in the area."
