The wet winter provided plenty of rain for grass to grow tall in fields and along parkways. Now the high grass is turning brown and firefighters are responding to extinguish the blazes before they reach structures. Sacramento Fire Department firefighters on Tuesday put out a grass fire along railroad tracks in the 3500 block of Florin Road. A helmet cam captured images of firefighters laying hose, spraying water and tending to hot spots.
