Jun 22 - Sacramento Fire crews battled a tough and smoky fire in the American River Parkway today in extremely high heat conditions. With assistance from Sacramento Metropolitan Fire and West Sacramento Fire, and the thermometer at 110 degrees, the firefighters were able to extinguish the approximately 7 acre fire. Additional crews and resources were brought in to allow firefighters to rotate to a rehab unit for rehydration and cooling measures. There were no injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Read Post

Jun 19 - A fire in two vehicles on Westbound Business 80 spread to surrounding vegetation this afternoon, leading to a extended fire fight for Sacramento Fire crews. As engines on the freeway battled the vehicle fires, other crews fought the wind-driven grass fire as it spread up the embankment and across the site of the old city landfill. The fire eventually grew to 20 acres, but crews were able to surround it and keep it from spreading to nearby railroad tracks and structures. There were no injuries, and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Read Post
