Firefighters made quick work of a 3-acre grass fire that broke out Friday afternoon near Inderkum High School in north Natomas, according to the Sacramento Fire Department.

The fire started in the RP-Sports Complex area near North Park Drive in the North Natomas Regional Park behind the school at 12:08 p.m. and was contained 90 minutes later, according to a release from the department. Smoke was visible from Highway 99 and Interstate 80 driving into Sacramento around 12:30 p.m.

“There’s really no loss of property, nobody was injured. Quick extinguishment from our troops that were out here and on top of it,” said Deputy Chief Niko King.

King added there was some “excitement in the school” with all of the fire equipment around the campus and some students were evacuated to a different location.

No structures were threatened. The cause of the fire is unknown.
