Sep 30 - Sacramento firefighters were kept busy last night with two separate working structure fires and three separate vegetation fires on the American River Parkway. Here, crews battled a house fire on the 3800 block of Ivy in North Sacramento. Heavy fire conditions threatened the homes on either side, and downed and arcing powerlines to the rear of the structure were an added hazard. The fire was confined to one home, there were no injuries, and the cause is under investigation. Read Post

Sep 29 - Sacramento Fire crews performed a difficult and dangerous rescue last night off of Garden Highway. Two cars while racing went off the embankment, through trees and underbrush, and down into a ditch. The two drivers fled, leaving behind a third injured patient in one of the vehicles. Crews first stabilized the vehicle with ropes, then used extrication equipment to cut the patient out of the vehicle. Once packaged in the Stokes litter, the patient was brought up the embankment with a rope hauling system and transported to an area hospital. Read Post

Sep 22 - The Sacramento Fire Department is now in the railroad business. Crews from the California Task Force 7 USAR team recently built a short section of roadbed and railroad tracks at our training facility at McClellan Park. A tanker railcar donated by the Shell Corporation was delivered by trailer and placed on the track. Sacramento Fire, Rescue, HazMat and USAR crews now have an on-site ability to train on simulated tanker fires, spills, confined space entries, and other emergencies. All aboard the Sacramento Fire Pacific! Read Post
