Fire officials credited the owner of vacant property with preventing fire damage to south Sacramento County homes by discing a line along fences.
A fire in the area of Vintage Park Drive and Stutz Court, west of Elk Grove Florin Road, was contained to 2 acres, said Assistant Chief Patrick Ellis of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire. Protection District.
No structures were damaged by the fire, which was reported just before 5 p.m. and was contained about seven minutes after firefighters arrived on the scene, Ellis said.
By discing the area, the landowner created a fire break that prevented flames from spreading to homes.
“This property owner did what we need to get others to do,” Ellis said.
