About 2,000 homes are without power due to a wildfire in the Stanford Foothills that affected power lines, according to a university spokesperson.
The grass fire near Junipero Serra Boulevard that was initially reported at 1:23 p.m. was fully contained by around 4 p.m., according to fire officials. It burned approximately 20 acres.
Junipero Serra Boulevard between Stanford Avenue to Campus Drive East is still closed to traffic as fire crews continue monitoring the fire north of the Dish area.
Two firefighters were evacuated by helicopter because of apparent heat exhaustion.
Fire engines from Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Woodside, Santa Clara County and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection responded to the fire at Junipero Serra Boulevard and Campus Drive on Stanford lands.
Helicopters and other aircraft dumped water and flame retardant on the fire, which was north of the area that burned in a grass fire on June 25.
The Dish trails have been closed to the public all week because of extreme fire danger.
Earlier in the week, David Demarest, the university's vice president for public affairs, indicated the trails area would be closed through July 8.
"We remain very concerned about the possibility of another fire, especially given continued high temperatures and low humidity," Demarest said.
The June 25 fire consumed some 200 acres. Fire officials initially said it was caused by "human activity," indicating the possibility of arson or acciedental cause.
