Two brush fires that started as pile burns Tuesday morning spread across at least 3 acres of rural residential land near Santa Rosa, requiring quick responses by firefighting crews to control the flames. About 10:30 a.m. Cal Fire and the Sonoma County Fire District were dispatched to an escaped residential pile burn in the Mark West Springs area, on the northeastern outskirts of Santa Rosa. When firefighters arrived at the 1600 block of Anaheim Court, the fire was covering an area about 100 feet by 300 feet of grass and brush, said Sonoma County Fire District Fire Marshal Cyndi Foreman.
