  • Dry, dead vegetation triggers swift moving grass fire near Cal Expo

    A grass fire broke out this afternoon along the American River Parkway. Large amounts for dry, dead vegetation (fuel), can be seen all over the Parkway, allowing this grass fire to quickly be upgraded to a three-alarm as more fire crews were quickly called into action to aid in containment. Chris Harvey, Public Information Officer for Sacramento Fire Dept., leads the camera along the American River Parkway to show hot sports and just how quickly fire can consume dry vegetation.
