Firefighters knock down small grass blaze

Newport Beach firefighters doused a small grass fire near Dover Drive and Pacific Coast Highway late Saturday afternoon, officials said.

A Metro Net dispatcher said the call came in at about 5:20 p.m. and the blaze was under control about eight minutes later. He said two fire trucks and seven firefighters responded to the scene.

Asked whether anything sustained damage, the dispatcher replied, "Just the grass."
