Grass Fire Near Capital City Freeway

A grass fire slowed traffic along East Bound Capital City Freeway at the Exposition Blvd. off ramp. The fire burned the grass area inside the “cloverleaf.” The call came in at 12:10 P.M. and Sacramento Fire Department Engine 4 arrived at 12:17 P.M.

This fire along with the Natomas Business fire kept Sacramento Firefighters busy today. Resources were requested from the West Sacramento Fire Department and the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District to assist with this grass fire.

The California Highway Patrol and the Sacramento Police Department responded to handle the traffic problem.
