OAKLAND (KRON) -- Calfire confirms a three-alarm blaze that blackened a hillside in the Oakland Hills is now contained.

The fire broke out before 2:00 p.m. in the area near Keller Avenue and Mountain.  That's just east of Interstate 580.

PG&E says as many as 7,000 customers are without power in the area after a car hit a power pole.  It's unclear if that's how the fire was sparked.

Although the flames were close to some homes, authorities would not confirm any evacuations.

There are no confirmed reports of injuries.

KRON 4 crews are on the scene.  Stay tuned to KRON 4 and KRON4.com for the latest on this developing story.
