A fire torched dry brush that was very close to a cemetery in Butte County early Saturday morning.

Butte County firefighters found flames burning west of the Memorial Cemetery around 12:45 a.m. The fire burned vegetation between the cemetery and railroad tracks nearby.

Crews put an aggressive jump on the blaze and contained it to four acres. No one was hurt and no structures were threatened.

The fire is under investigation.
