Vegetation fire near Sutter's Landing in Sacramento contained | Update

The fire grew to 28 acres.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Firefighters contained a blaze that grew to 28 acres near Sutter's Landing in Sacramento.

The Sacramento Fire Department said the fire crews responded to 28th Street to combat the fire. Captain Keith Wade said the fire started south of the river and spotted over to the north side of it. He said the fire grew rapidly on the northside, but the southside of the fire was handled with no issue.

“Our issue is just cutting the head off of this fire and limiting its spread further down toward the levy and also west of Business 80,” Wade said.

He added that winds were driving the fire as crews tried to get it under control.

Crews eventually contained the fire with no injuries reported. Smoke and smoldering can be expected throughout the evening; firefighters will be at the scene to ensure fire control.
