Fire officials are investigating a Wednesday two-alarm grass fire near Sailor Bar as a case of arson.

The fire, which burned 15 acres, forced the evacuation of two homes on the Fair Oaks Bluffs.

Capt. Michelle Eidam of the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District said the blaze was started in three separate locations.

“It’s been ruled arson based on that,” she said.

Two firefighters suffered minor injuries battling the blaze, Eidam said.

No suspect has been identified. Anyone with information about the fire is asked to call the arson tip line at (916) 859-3775.
