Bicycle commuters were being asked to avoid the bike trail near Del Paso Boulevard Friday morning as Sacramento Fire Department crews mopped up a grass fire in the area.
The 2-alarm blaze broke out about 4:30 a.m. Friday near Del Paso Boulevard and the bike trail in brush, grass and trees. The dry conditions, heavy vegetation and a moderate morning breeze spread the fire into the canopy of the trees for a time.
No structures were ever threatened, according to a tweet from the fire department. Firefighters had knocked down the fire by 7 a.m. and were making sure all hotspots were fully extinguished.
Large trees had to be cut down where the fire swept through part of parkway this morning.
