  • Youngsters help Sacramento firefighters douse garbage fire

    On Sunday, while finishing his route in Citrus Heights, a garbage truck driver had to think fast when he noticed his truck was on fire. He quickly found an open court he could use, emptied his truck, and called 911. Sacramento Metro Fire crews arrived and quickly extinguished the fire. Once it was safe, the Engine 21 crew got some extra "help" from court residents Zaniah, 5, Marcus, 5, and McKinley, 3.
